It's not an issue of desire as much as it is an issue of manpower.  The team 
need more man-hours per week for triaging and fixing bugs as well as 
packaging and testing new versions.

Also, Sid is meant for packages that should be suitable for stable release 
at some point, it is rare that alpha/beta software qualifies.  I wouldn't 
say most recent RC releases from the KDE project qualify either.  
Experimental could contain that software, but only as time permits for the 
maintainers; it doesn't for the Debian Qt/KDE team.
