KDED is user specific.

You would need to find a way to signal the connection state of the central 
server to the kded internet module on all affected clients.

And gracefull shutdown will be a bit more complicated if you want to 
coordinate that between different clients.

I think it's something to keep in mind but I don't think we should focus too 
much on it right now.
