If nothing else, this is a very worthwhile "what-if" thought-experiment. 
  It would help highlight process assumptions and associated 
pain-points, to help pave the way for other successful derivatives/spins.

Fedora's spin process has been haphazardly taking baby steps in that 
direction over the past couple of releases, and the kde-sig will 
continue to work earnestly with this now-clear goal in mind.  We've also 
garnered commitments from our own and upstream kde developers to help 
work through any implementation or technical details required.
