A report from pgCon 2013
They should be able to upgrade independently. Right now I'm using k3b, ktorrent, kid3 and digikam. I've never had problems with any of them.

however a new version of QT, GNOME, KDE, glibc, etc or changing what compiler is used to compile the distro would require a LOT of testing to make sure that it works well with everything else. These are the types of things that I think work well on a six-month upgrade cycle where several of these things get udated at once as opposed to a full rolling-update distro like gentoo where these may appear at any time.

I think this would be a very good thing.
there is desktop infrastructure, and then there are desktop applications. Most applications can be used on either desktop nowdays, and I personally think that the attitude that you must use KDE to use any KDE apps (or GNOME to use any GNOME apps) is preventing competition between the apps developed for the different desktops.
