The KDE packagers have decided that KDE is good enough at avoiding
regressions that upgrading from 4.2 to 4.3 is reasonably safe. (Or
alternatively, that KDE 4.2 was so bad that 4.3 could only be an
improvement.) The Gnome packagers have the opposite views of Gnome.

Those 2 views do not conflict, and even if the teams were using the
exact same criteria, they could still come to those conclusions. You can
only call it inconsistent if KDE and Gnome have exactly the same release
policy and exactly the same history of bugs (or the absence of bugs).
This is clearly not the case.
