No, LightDM-KDE and KDM solve different problems. KDM is a full-blown display
manager while LightDM-KDE is just the greeter for LightDM - a display manager
not part of the KDE Plasma Workspaces.
These two projects serve different needs and are not competitive (even if they
were I want to point out that we also ship two file managers). At the moment
including LightDM-KDE just means that we make it an alternative distributions
We btw already discussed that on the plasma mailinglist and so far all agreed
that it does not have to replace KDM and that those two can be shipped
