I second that, i consider that a very good guideline for how likely a package 
is going to integrate well with a particular DE. It also allows me to quickly 
determine that some package will have a major cascading dependency tree that 
i may or may not have installed. I also frequently will do a search for say 
"kde mail client" or such like and having kde/gtk/whatever in the description 
helps greatly on this.
