I see only 2 acceptable outcomes, either KDE becomes a Product or the whole
concept of "Products" gets dropped.
The KDE spin has always been a release-blocking deliverable, why should we
get degraded to a second-class citizen?
Why do you think only about KDE? This topic shouldn't turn into a DE war IMHO.
The product for Desktop users should be just one, Workstation. And
KDE, as Xfce or LXDE are part of this product and should live under
the wing of the Workstation. That's not a degration in my eyes, just
another array, and it's not constructive to have for every DE
environment a separate product. Fedora.next is not this, fedora.next
aims to have 3 main products for different use cases, there is no
reason to have a separate product for every single Spin unless we want
to go backwards again.
