I guess for the same reasons you want to change from default kde
applets, administrators might want to change default debian-edu
applets like iceweasel to Opera. As it is now you can only add
applets using kiosktool not remove them.

If you want to replace iceweasel with Opera, you want to change
/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/99-edu-prefer-iceweasel too, btw.
That was just and example it could also be removing an applet
I suspect the best way to do this is to actually edit
/etc/skel/.kde/share/config/kickerrc. :(
No, that wont work you have to edit $users/.kde/share/config/kickerrc.
Easy enough with a script, but difficult for teacher admins.

When moving kickerrc to kde profiles you only make the change for every profile and you can even use kiosktool which is very teacher friendly :-)

My point is that using kiosktool you can easily make changes to the desktop for all users or groups of users when it comes to menu, background, themes and more but not the panel because kickerrc created by skel has a higher priority than kickerrc in the kde profiles.

I see this as a missing feature in Debian-edu (a small one :-) ) compared to Debian and there is no reason for this when moving your debian-edu specific kickerrc to kde profiles works just great.
