changing the default appearance (put something nice instead of that daft cross-hatch),

I've actually come to appreciate the cross-hatch pattern lately, in the
course of testing out monitors. it's very good at showing convergence
errors, moire patterns, and 'static'.

it is irritating in some ways; but it's a very good basic test pattern.

Redhat has patched their server to start up with a solid black
background.  Personally I'd like to see some sort of extension to the X
server where you can pass it an image (svg, png) for immediate display
as soon as the preferred video mode is reached.  Any takers?
