I'm sorry to discuss this thing now, but I've seen all the new artworks recently. Anyway the point is that everything will remain in kde-workspace history forever so moving it away at that point will not decrease space usage.
I think that fixing this issue today is the best thing to do. I would like to create kde-base-artworks for that kind of stuff.
