Well some quick thoughts:
#01 kde metabar
I have requested the theming of konqueror's metabar in the past in
this mailing list:
but didn't get any reply, neither from the kde maintainer.

Default fedora kde's metabar:

#02: FE icon theme guidelines
This should be requested to FESCo:
Any kde icon set should have the fedora-logo as the kmenu icon.
Example: I changed the default kmenu icon of crystal-clear to the
fedora-logo, branding fedora properly always make fedora looks better

Perhaps you guys from Fedora Artwork might provide some generic fedora
*.png to FE packagers if they want to theme their packages.

#03: kontact theming
Fedora will have its own kde version soon, having too many email
clients on the iso isn't a bright idea. So kontact theming might be
considered with respect to fedora as well :)

#04: End KDE session
The Fedora's KDE End session 's image
/usr/share/apps/ksmserver/pics/shutdownkonq.png is the default KDE
It would be nice to have a special fedora kde "end session" picture
showing, for example konqi (the dragon) having fun with Fedora.

Showing konqi flying on Fedora balloons on F7  for example.

Since Fedora will have soon a special kde version, Fedora is likely to
have such things.

#05: I haven't yet seen any progress of echo theme in kde's
perspective, since when I last tried Echo theme was not compatible
with kde :(

#06: khelpcenter
khelpcenter is something too worth to consider.

Well, I don't know whether you guys can give some 30-45 mins
mini-conference on irc (perhaps one each two months) which could
attract some artists from kde-look.org to work on and give love to
Fedora's kde.

On my side, whenever, I see some nice artwork with respect to Fedora,
I don't hesitate to invite the artist to join this mailing list (even
if it's gnome related).

Some urls:
- http://kde-artists.org
- http://oxygen-icons.org/

A reason to try now :)

Merry Christmas,
