I can vouch for the fact that there are KDE people that are interested, though 
there's nothing of a formal concensus at this point.  There's still a lot of 
discussion yet to come on the KDE 4 multimedia side (which I'll save for the 
KDE lists), but that's still a while out. 
I personally don't object to it being in Freedesktop's CVS in the context that 
there's no artificial "standardization" implied by that.  i.e. I'd be just as 
open to a competitor with similar goals being there...
