It's unlikely to come as a surprise that plasma5's pager has had the 
current-desktop highlighting feature for some time, so that one should be 
taken care of by an upgrade.

While the window outlines are still not optional in plasma5, they're far 
less obtrusive (IIRC and as your post implies compared to what I see 
here).  There's an option to toggle icons for them, but not to remove the 
outlines entirely.

Plasma5's pager does, however, have an option (that I don't remember 
whether 4 had or not) to display desktop name, number, or nothing.  With it 
set to name and the name long enough (and the pager set small enough if 
it's not in a small panel already), it practically obscures any window 
outlines.  Of course one can also get create with the names, pasting in 
characters like 🅰-🆉 (hope the character encoding works for those, I guess 
I'll see when I post) from kcharselect instead of using normal characters, 
even further obscuring anything other than the displayed desktop name.
