Spicing up iPhone's black background

I was wondering why the Home view on the iPhone features a flat black background. It saves battery, I suppose, but it's also a little boring. Here are some quick mock-ups of what it would look like with background images.

Click for full-size.

iPhone with blue swoosh "desktop" background
Nice, but feels like bastardized Mac OS X.

iPhone with Nemo "desktop" background
Colorful, but too busy.

iPhone with my "desktop" background
Way too busy.

I actually prefer the black. Can you do better?

All images here are Apple's. No hard feelings?
