No need to worry. I'm also not a fan of shiny appearance. For example, compiz 
is for me totally useless thing. So I will take care to preserve the sober 
classic look.

That you're reminded "get new wallpapers" is a very good idea! Linked to this 
is that we probably had for these downloads establish own source independent 
from KDE sources.

A comprehensive theme of shiny appearance could possibly be as a separate 
package. To those who want it, would then be able to simply install a shiny 
theme package.
