Forgive me for the late reply, I hope it is still worth it.

Someone already mentioned the proxy settings. Do you think it would be
interesting to have something that would actually identify the current
network the user is connected to? What I mean is that I have a laptop that I
use at work and at home on a daily basis. These two "profiles" have distinct
name servers, mail relays, proxies and even autofs configurations.
I currently use a simple python script to change those configurations on
demand (I use arping to detect the current network). This is something that I
find useful but I am not sure this kind of things fit on what KDED should be.
I've been thinking of writing a KDE app to do what I currently do with the
python script. Do you think that this functionality may have a place on KDED
or maybe it is better as a kdeadmin-like standalone application?
