I don't think average users perceive the login screen as a separate
application. Most people I know tend to think desktop and login are
one big solid box and applications are the things that sit in the
menus. I think setting the login wallpaper in the Appearance capplet
and enabling autologin in the Users/Groups management capplet is the
natural place to look for such settings. The bonus here is that GNOME
feels more integrated (that's also why I think the screensaver
properties should be a part of appearance but there is no obvious
place to put the session idle delay option).
