Ok, good point. Let's keep some tile background available. I will stick to your list for those.

Being KDE available under GNU I think trademark is not a problem. Nevertheless indirectly you raised another good point. Since we are rebranding and restyling, it would make sense to also have a new mascot for TDE, instead of KDE's dragon. Would you and Alex be available to work something out in the spare time?

Good suggestion and yes, definitely for after v14.0.0. I will open a bug report so we won't forget about it.
