Yes.  My loose definitions:
"kde4 runtime": infrastructure (libs, resources) required to develop/run
kde4 apps.

"kde4 desktop": kde4's kdm (login manager), kwin (window manager), etc...

To simplify, the 2 scenarios for f8 to include:
* (more likely) Like f7, kde3 desktop + kde4 runtime
* kde4 desktop + kde3 runtime
ok, or 3rd icky option:
* kde4 runtime not ready and not included(1).

(1) at ship date, doesn't preclude adding it afterward (just like any
other "new package").
