That is certainly debatable, but if KDE3 was delivered with Intrepid, 
someone would have to spend developer time for that version for 18 months 
according to the Canonical support promise. And if there are two KDE 
versions to support, it simply doubles the necessary ressources which 
doesn't make sense financially. Remember: Developer time = €€€.

Now if you read the other posts on this list about KDE4, there seem to be 
several people who don't mind switching already. Therefore I don't think 
it is a real problem to have KDE4 as default and no KDE3 for Intrepid.
