A long fight by KDE SIG. It took several releases (including one or two 
releases which shipped a KDE live image with bugs which would probably have 
been considered blockers if the blocker process hadn't been arbitrarily 
restricted to GNOME) and repeated complaints by us for them to finally make 
KDE a release-blocking desktop.

Now if you ask me about my opinion about the other desktops: IMHO, all the 
desktops on the Multi Desktop Live DVD should be considered release-
blocking. I don't see why a blocker bug in, say, Xfce shouldn't be treated 
the same way as a blocker bug in GNOME.
