Why all the fuss? No-one said we're removing the plain "desktop"
profile, we're simply adding *more* options.

If you want generic DE options pre-enabled, choose the desktop profile.
If you *know* you only need KDE as your DE, choose KDE,
If you *know* you only need GNOME as your DE, choose GNOME,
If you need both or can't decide, either choose Desktop and add the
USE flags yourself or use both profiles together.

Beats enabling default USE flags without asking you :)
