We actually prefer it when upstream is able to run with an idea, and we 
certainly have the ability to help flesh it out.

The web page you are looking at actually is for the Ubuntu Sound Menu, and not 
a KDE specific item. Unfortunately, sub-pages of http://wiki.kubuntu.org/* maps 
directly to http://wiki.ubuntu.com/*, which is why you see this, and hence the 

For any KDE/Kubuntu specific items, we usually will prefix pages with KDE or 
Kubuntu or K to make it more obvious that it is for the 'K' family :)

I expect that there are a lot of ideas generated in the Ubuntu Sound Menu that 
we could easily move forward with upstream in KDE, and others which simply 
make no sense. 

We'd love to see how you envision this, and what we may do to help make this a 
reality for all KDE users.
