Because of the coding of how appearance -> background works in 3.4 there is
going to be a problem with 'parent' themes setting default images and colors
to their theme. (probably just images from what I read)
If a parent theme sets an image as a default in the $args, it will forever
then be required to use the appearance -> background
Order of execution, even if you remove the background image and color from
the background -> appearance it still sets background-image: none; even
What this does?
This makes it so that any image set from the style.css either child theme or
parent theme or even plugin will be ignored completely.
What we need to look for.
If the theme in question ever wants to have child themes associated with it,
then the main theme must *not* set defaults in the $args in 3.4
Since we want everyone to be child theme capable. Then if any defaults are
set in the parent theme they need to be removed or child themes simply will
not work when setting a new image for that child theme.
This might change if the logic changes before release, but this is how it is
right now. according to:
