Kubuntu Desktop is a meta package.
It really isn't necessary

If you remove it you can remove unwanted KDE packages.
This COULD cause upgrade problems, but so can many
other things Like adding packages built from source.

If like me you have had to do things like add
Crossover, compile HPILP cuz it didn't work with my
new all in one (yes I submitted a bug report) or ad
commercial or other apps not in the repositories that
can break an" upgrade" too.

But Kubuntu Desktop is a starting point, its necessity
isn't written in stone.
