Indeed, I think something mylyn-like could be very beneficial to KDE (I don't know about GNOME since I don't use it). KDE already has the mentioned "Activities" concept, Nepomuk, geo-location etc and most importantly it has KDE-style APIs for a great variety of things, like hardware (solid).

On the other hand, a way to automatically and dynamically build a "context" by just looking at what the user is doing right now is currently missing and mylyn (to the extent that I understand it) is mainly about that.

E.g., imagine the system "remembering" that when you are in your "graphics design" activity, you are very likely to be using gimp, inkscape etc, so it preloads parts of them in RAM to make them really fast to start.
