You can for sure (afterall it's UNIX, and there's several ways to accomplish a task), but I wouldn't because it makes it harder to restore the K2 to a factory state. If you delete those images and don't save them, then you're SOL unless you can get someone else to get you a copy of them.
If you're sure you'll never sell yours or need customer support, then go for it, you're probably right about never having to undo it--unless the updates include patches for the screen savers, in which case you better have a copy of the originals. Though this does seem unlikely (unlikely that they would update the images, and unlikely that if they did they would do so with a patch instead of a replace.)
