As I said, the official stance is that if you don't like plasma5's screensaving/locking, you just have to use something else. For me that includes (or included) the impossibility to blank the screen without ever turning it off or locking it, and with a simple saver app running like the KDE4 kclock screensaver.

The point with a screenlocker is that it must be secure, which is why it is so tightly integrated. If you have better suggestions, or know you can represent the needs and desires of a silent majority of users, why not subscribe to the plasma-devel ML and bring all this to the attention of the developers?
