I'm not at all interested what's best for creators, I'm interested in
what's best for users. I don't think that having "remove background"
then show a default background image is a good user experience.

However, given the change in
http://core.trac.wordpress.org/changeset/21054 (which I disagree
with), I expect the theme reviewers to come up with some sane set of
rules surrounding it, to ensure that the user experience is correct in
newer themes. Basically, you'll need to add extra code to the
style.css to make it work properly, which is what I was actually
trying to avoid requiring from theme authors.
