This will be bad if the local X server is already running KDE, because 
startkde will again start panel, desktop, etc.

It really depends on the usage scenario:

- remote login: XDMCP has to be enabled on the "server" machine and the local 
X server needs to be started to query the server machine

- remote desktop: when one also wants local login and just needs to work with 
the "server" machine's desktop now and then. IMHO best accomplished through 
NoMachine's NX technology (www.nomachine.com)
