I am not sure the question is for me :) Are you questioning KDE's idea of 
configurability and fair defaults for win32-like, mac-like and unix-like profiles?

And your statements are mostly wrong:
1. KDElibs are protable to win32, so there's is a 'support'

2. I can say it again: Since KDE has predefined settings for win32-like 
profile too, so user choosing it (at first KDE's startup) expects standard 
win32 shortcuts to work. André informed us that the default is now changing in 
more and more apps around, so IMHO our win32-like profile can follow. Whether 
our global default for 'redo' should change is a matter of usability tests. 
Perhaps we can keep both shortcuts, as AFAIK it is the case with ctrl+V and
