I already told you. This reasoning is flawed. The KDE live cd is not one

And yet it is specifically KDE, while the Fedora Live CD is specifically.... Fedora.

And you don't consider KDE to be part of Fedora? KDE Live is mostly KDE programs and some GNOME, some GTK and other programs just like GNOME live cd. It has never been about purity of the desktop environment. Just different focus. Both of the desktop environments are part of Fedora. The GNOME live images are not anymore specifically about Fedora than the KDE live images.

 The Desktop environment that Fedora wants to put forward as the
default, the best foot forward.

No. It's the desktop environment the GNOME team should be putting it's best foot forward. The KDE team should be putting it's best foot forward via the KDE live images (same for XFCE or fluxbox or whatever teams) and we in the Fedora project should be giving both these teams *neutral ground* to compete aggressively and fairly on winning over new users.

PS: I am mostly using GNOME. This isn't my bias.
