Then, gconf would need to be installed in KDE and KDE needs to
understand and track gconf API and all applications that are not KDE and
not Gnome apps like Firefox, Thunderbird and OpenOffice would have to
understand and track gconf API as well.

I hope you can prove me wrong but I think that scenario is, to say it
very mildly, unlikely. And even if someone accepted the burden to
develop the patches, it would be very time-consuming to maintain them.
After all, KDE, Gnome, Firefox, Thunderbird, OpenOffice, etc change
rapidly and I seriously doubt such patches will be accepted upstream.

But I don't want to discourage you to implement it, even if it turns out
to be impractical for one reason or another, it would be worth the try
and it would be good to know the reasons.
