Why would they lose their users?
They can create 3.5.X packages that will continue to work, Question is who is going to step up to the plate and deliver KDE 3.5.X packages for Fedora?

Are you willing to give some of your time to make this a reality?

Remember you can remove all of KDE 4.X from Fedora and build KDE 3.5.9 from source and no one should stop you from doing that.  There is no way that you can have the cake and eat it too! :)

Kubuntu has two versions, one with KDE 4.0 and one with KDE 3.5.9, Debian will include KDE 4.X in testing and will not force it onto their users

There will always be CentOS, Scientific Linux, other RHEL clones.  The kernel exuse is not a good one, you can compile your own kernel and move forward.  You want the latest and greatest except for KDE and not have to work at it, is not possible.
