I think tao meant KDE was intending to replace HAL partly because it was "not invented here", rather than buying into the stated "HAL is not cross-platform" excuse. On the other hand, HAL won't be cross-platform enough to make the jump to completely alien platforms like Windows, so if Windows support is a big goal for KDE they do need something beyond just HAL.
