The first one ("OM screen") lives in a dedicated flash partition and is
loaded by u-boot. It could be updated by the opkg that is responsible
for the other splash screen, in the same way that the kernel opkg will
re-flash the kernel partition when it is updated. This might be a good
project for one of the community members (hint, hint).
It should be possible to hide the linux text scrolling - OpenSuSE (for
example) does it, but I don't know the details. I personally like to see
the penguin and the Linux messages.
AFAIK the remaining issues are because the splash-screen starts out by
using the raw framebuffer, and then later X11 is started. I don't know
what room for improvement there is in this area - maybe someone else can
