Near as I can tell, Ubuntu could switch to QT by a simple mv Ubuntu Gubuntu; mv Kubuntu Ubuntu.
Sure, in order to reduce the pain, they'd probably do a lot of work with making themes match, tweaking a few apps to look more like their GTK workalike, maybe even porting a few common apps to QT, etc., but it would not be nearly as difficult as switching KDE to using a different toolkit.
I don't think it will happen, just saying that the option actually exists.
