While I am no expert at this, I can try.
But looking at Fedora 9, I think Syslinux is able to use images with 
more than 16 colors (and the ThemingOverview page is obsolete about this 
matter - the boot splash on the LiveCD is beautiful, the one on the 
normal install is ugly) so the 640x480 version has to be optimised.

And I will say it again: for such splashes the XCF with *all* layers is 
not needed, we can use the PNG wallpaper as a base and do not waste a 
lot of space and bandwidth.
