The chroot is built at installation time and has the same desktop

Yes. But see the manual: it recommends to use the kernel param 
'desktop=lxde' instead of the default 'desktop=kde' if LTSP is intended 
to be used.

I guess disk space and NBD build/update time is the main reason.

Out of my head: Xfce in addition to kde consumes not that much more, 
LXDE adds more than Xfce.

While choice is good, each environment adds own programs for the same
