Yes. But what I understood from the post was that what you get on your
desktop is more of an 'icon widget' than an 'icon'. Traditional
desktops are essentially just a single folder which is rendered in a
special way. Which, as a side effect, means you can do all the things
you can normally do with a folder, such as sort.

KDE4's desktop seems to be more of a surface on which you can place
things than a folder.
