I'm not sure this would be a good example of « integration between the
various desktops », would it ? :) Unless you mean that each desktop
should only be integrated with itself...

I use GNOME but I love Konversation, sometimes Amarok, and used to like
Kontact a lot. I'm not sure it would be a good idea to hide these great
apps if you run GNOME. Doesn't integration aim to, precisely, make KDE
apps look good and behave well in GNOME, and GTK apps in KDE ?
