Simple: Change the culture of computing in general such that participating in the development (at all levels, testing, bug reporting, artwork, translations, coding) of the software that one uses is common-place and expected as a part & parcel of using the software. This may sound like changing the gravitational constant of the universe, but it can be done, if little by little and user by user.
No, it cannot be done. It is head-in-the-clouds attitudes like yours that make a mess of things like KDE 4.0. You can wish all day for whatever you want, but if you put a wish in one hand and a turd in the other, you won't like the result.
