I definitely don't want to start a war about desktops here, but I 
suspect that the duplication of effort between KDE and the other 
desktops is due to the annoying tendency of attempts at unification to 
require and promote GLib as the grand solution to everything.  GLib runs 
fine in GTK+-based desktops, but in Qt-based desktops, it lags the 
system badly and annoys users.

Right now, I'm trying to figure out why gvfs is creating their own 
IO-slave concept rather than trying to come up with a unified slave 
concept, considering the io-slave concept has been in KDE since version 
2, IIRC.
