I don't understand where the problem is ...
EDIT: By the way if you customize your backgrounds with background customizer, you won't loose them after every update.
You answered the question yourself
People's mood changes. So they may change the Background Set (new term or "Background Theme" maybe? ) which gives the 'look' to their system. Or they may want to try out a background set to see how it looks.
Make a Background folder and move/replace it in - sure works, but you get down in the bowels of the skin, and lose it on the next update. Myself I'm on a straight LIVE setup, so direct access into the folders isn't easy (not all of us are Linux guru's :oo.
Change out all them all System-->Skin-->Customize Backgrounds. Sure, works.. but takes a LONG time and if you don't like it takes a while to go back.
System--> Skin--> Customize Backgrounds -- > Background Set
Choose Background Set - lets you choose a folder anywhere on the system or even on other shares, the skin loads the backgrounds from there (and if a background isn't defined, uses the default). And retains it across new versions.
Default Background Set - uses the skin default for all backgrounds.
SURE you can do it the other ways. But this would be simpler, easier, faster, easier to change to something else, easier to get back to the default, harder to screw something up when you're down in the skin structure, opens up a new customization meme (you could put Background Sets in repositories if you wanted maybe?, downloads a folder of backgrounds) that anyone could do simply without having to get in the guts of the skin, lose on an update and switch out quickly, simply and easily
