Well, maybe. ;-)
I think it says about the same (just very terse and unclear).

The "this document..." introduction didn't make sense to me as part of the 
email. It basically duplicated what the rest of the mail said already.

I don't know.

To me, having a one-sentence vision statement alone is not overly important, 
I'm more interested in having a document which tells people what KDE is trying 
to achieve. That may need more than one sentence.

Having said that, the "core" is the first sentence ("KDE is....").

The four items basically just go into more details to explain what that "core" 
statement is supposed to cover.

The whole thing is just a first, rough draft, waiting for feedback, 
suggestions, etc.
If you think this is not a vision, but a vision+mission, or something else, 
say so. :-)
