(From your email) I fail to see the advantage as other commenters have 
pointed out. What problem is there that cannot be solved using 
dependencies and kde/gnome use flags? This decision just seems to 
increase the split between KDE and Gnome and that does not reflect 
user's realities: They use both. Gnome desktop + kmail, k3b, yakuake or 
KDE with evince, etc.

Why add one more decision to make where the result is unclear (and 
honestly, profile documentation is almost zero)?
