Why does the KDE spin have to be released at the same time as the general
GNOME-oriented release?

With F7 creating custom spins should be "easy". Just have a time when the
GNOME desktop will be ready (and well-tested) as the F8 release, release
a F8 KDE spin beta/release candidate at the same time, wait for KDE final to 
be out and release a F8+updates+KDE4 spin after some time of testing.

It will much likely be of much better quality than the "real" F8 
by then, since the entire distro will have a month or so of testing by
those idiots that happen to believe GNOME is the better desktop.
