You don't think that might have to do with the VERY small group of people 
attempting to keep it working while pushing the envelope with the newest KDE has 
to offer?  There is no question that gnome gets more attention in Fedora, but 
more attention for KDE and getting things like pulseaudio to 'just work' would 
probably be more likely with more people working on it.  What the few do right 
now is amazing to even keep KDE in the game.  IMO it has everything to do with 
just not making it work; not with gnome doing their thing...
