I think the motivation behind having the default wallpaper in breeze
is that plasma-workspace-wallpapers is pretty huge and thus considered
optional. If we are ok with changing this and making it a requirement
then I suppose we could move it. It certainly makes sense if we want
to keep the wallpapers around and after release (i.e. give them a
proper name and ship them in plasma-workspace-wallpapers).

The other option is to create breeze-(default-)wallpapers which we'd
consider a runtime requirement of breeze that contains the standard
Next wallpaper as well as the previous default wallpapers (assuming we
want to keep them around).

So I think the first question here is: do we want to keep old default
wallpapers around or always replace them?
