The Canonical Design Team gave a rather beautiful login screen mockup for the unity greeter. These designs, in my opinion far exceed the current UI that we have for Quantal (which I think is worse, apart from remote login), and I was led to beleive that these were the official guidelines for the greeter.

Are there plans to implement these designs into the Unity Greeter?

The proposal is here: https://docs.google.com/a/canonical.com/document/d/1ypvxcSmwNKKMZawit-0r6uLnbTxoA-XoyB0ZNCKNMSg/edit?pli=1

The mockups are here: https://docs.google.com/a/canonical.com/file/d/0BzP7juF4TDpQS3JCWmtHTmR6OVk/edit?pli=1

Not all propositions and mock ups make it to the final working design. We would live in a rather beautiful world if they did. –  Uri Herrera Oct 29 '12 at 22:15

But there is no reason why it shouldn't! We should have had transparent panels ages ago. The Design team seem to be quite ignored... –  Marco Scannadinari Oct 29 '12 at 22:30
    
that and when the "login box resizes and scales vertically" it scales off the screen... –  Mateo_ Nov 9 '12 at 2:49
