I think the biggest issue was, remembering the UDS discussion about this 
topic that UbuntuOne was not very cooperative with (pre-)warnings of API 
changes. This always puts a potential KDE version in the disadvantage of 
being behind the 8-ball.

I am not sure if there is a realistic chance to create a KDE version 
under these circumstances, interestingly, the UbuntuOne project within 
Canonical does seem to do the same here that Mark is criticising Gnome for.

This is unfortunate, however, I do not see currently a solution for this.
