Drop the bl-login-background Debian alternative?

There is already a desktop-grub Debian Alternative, which is installed by the desktop-base package to set the grub background image, and to which we added our own grub background.

By analogy with that, we introduced (in Helium?) a new Debian Alternative bl-login-background used to choose the backgound image for LightDM's login screen. It seemed at the time that it would make things easier for our users, but I'm now wondering if it might just be unnecessarily complicating things. It's easy enough to set the background image in /etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf which will override the BL preset in /usr/share/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf.d/50_bunsen.conf (which currently points to the Debian Alternative symlink).

Would anyone miss the bl-login-background if we just dropped it and set the default image path directly?

I don’t feel strongly, but prefer to drop it.

OK, then unless anyone asks to keep it by tomorrow, I'll take it out of the next bunsen-images upgrade.
For backwards compatibility, till bunsen-configs gets upgraded, I'll replace the alternative symlink with one pointing directly to the default image.
