Also, as RHEL6 is still a way off, and KDE 4 is developing fast, things _may_ have changed by the time it is released. But I do agree, atm I'd personally rather see KDE 3.5 included. The other factor to consider is the long term support issues related to maintaining KDE 3.5 in RHEL6 given that I _think_ qt3 is already unsupported.
