Yet another interesting Unity 7 change will make it into Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr: Unity will get its own lockscreen. 

Update: this feature landed in Ubuntu 14.04 last night.

Unity lockscreen

The new Unity lockscreen was implemented by Andrea Azzarone and is designed to look like the Unity Greeter.

Also, the new lockscreen allows a LightDM + Greeter fallback "in case you need more pam power" (because accessibility is not fully implemented yet), mentions the merge request description.

Below you can watch a video recorded by Marco Trevisan, demoing the new Unity lockscreen:
