I agree with you that there are probably GTK based projects which could fit just fine in KDE if we would be a bit less technology-focused. Inkscape, for one, seems to follow the KDE design philosophy closer than the GNOME one and they are debating moving to Qt regularly. If we'd tell them they could be a KDE project no matter what tech they use I predict that, if they decide to join, they'll move to Qt in a year or 2 anyway ;-)

Same with Synfig -- GIMP might be harder, though Oyvind Kolas argued that GIMP isn't a Gnome application despite being hosted by Gnome in all respects years ago.
