I can say that it worked for me.  I installed Ubuntu, then KDE-desktop,
then Xubuntu-desktop.  My only  problem was running IceWM and programs
from both Gnome and KDE caused the loading of way too much, thereby
slowing down my machine a lot at times unless I intervened.  Having done
all that I have gone back to a pure Ubuntu installation and my system
runs pretty quickly again.
Of course, YMMV and if you break it you get to keep both parts.
