I think KDE could get rid of lot of bloat by:

1) Strip Control Center and other setting dialogs to the most common stuff.

2) Create a new app called e.g. KTweakGui or something that can be used for 
all the special things like text shadows, cursor settings etc.

This way KDE will be easy for new users and for common operations. At the same 
time, many things that can only be tweaked by altering settings files 
in .kde/ today, would have a nice GUI too.

The hard part is to decide what is the common stuff :)
