Can you elaborate ?

Since Qt 4.6 and KDE 4.4, there is a Qt Gui platform plugin which is loaded by 
Qt (if Qt detect a KDE workspace running)
This plugin is queried to know the KDE style. The code is in kde svn [1] and 
does exactly the same as the current stuff.

Also, KDE already let Nokia decide a lot on how KDE applications behave and 
look. (If Nokia change the behavior of some widgets, ...).

Ps: I work for Nokia/Qt
