Well, I was very sad when Chris replaced Sebastian's design with the
design now called "KDE Window color style". At the time, Chris said we
wanted to change the technical implementation of the design, but not how
Later, Chris also changed the colours of the design to the window colour
style that is now default. I thought "what does Sebastian think about
this?", but since Chris is a maintainer of kde.org, I thought he would be
in contact with Sebastian about this.
I personally didn't like this change at all, but I am not a maintainer,
and at that time, I was very frustrated myself after I got flamed by one
of the maintainers. After my own frustration was settled, I send a mail
to Sebastian, offering him to write a new css file so that the new site
looks again like his original design. He answered me that he does not
want me to do this, since this was not his design and didn't want people
to confuse this with his design.

Yes, Chris wanted to do that, so I guess his aim never was to replace
Sebastian's design with something completely different.
I don't know if Sebastian has ever contacted Chris about his frustration,
and I don't know if Chris or any of the other maintainers ever contacted
Sebastian about him leaving the web team.
I was sometimes frustrated myself by missing responses to my work with the
style sheets, and by lack of maintainer enthusiasm about keeping the
promise to have a vote for the default style, so I can really understand
Sebastian's frustration. But Sebastian didn't post any comment on the
mailing list, so I don't know whether the maintainers are aware of his
frustration at all.
I am simply a contributor, so I think it is the task of the three
maintainers to settle this.
