Avio in general is quite good-looking and functional, has a KDE feel
to it. The layout bugs me a bit tho, I'd move the entry box below the
buttons after - like you said earlier - thinning them out.

I don't think the Infinity background will be busy or harsh enough to
make the login screen of yester-release look attractive/interesting.
You may see this is one were to imagine DNA and Infinity side-by-side.
This leads me to this that, because of all the parts to the screen,
Avio would be a good idea after some tweaking. Personally, I'd prefer
the second [1] style as the other's are blatantly Vista-ish.

Will the splashes use Mist icons or Echo? TBH I got lost in the
conversation about that - sorry!

That would be fantastic, I was thinking of doing that later on to give
us a break. Maybe when the proposals are either /really/ lame or when
about three people can work on it all!

I'll try to do the splashes as I've the templates from the old DNA and
Borealis [2/3].
