If that's your entire point, then you're flat-out wrong, because it's
only a very small subset of developers who work on the KDE packages.

Let me put it this way:
  * Jonathan Riddell and to some degree Stephan Hermann work on KDE
  * S=C3=83=C2=A9bastien Bacher and Daniel Holbach work on GNOME
  * everyone else works on everything else

The presence or otherwise of KDE in main does not have any impact on my
work on Xorg, Scott's breaking udev and hotplug, Ben's work on the
kernel, etc, etc.
