Maybe it's easier to let people realize that those are independent parts. KDE 
does not require a local nor the other way 'round.
Do you suggest a poll about what is the common way of installing it?

Actually, it's better to setup the system in steps, with installing and 
configuring X before installing a window manager or desktop environment.
