just some quick comments:

the point 1) plasmaED users: this is not a component, it's a part of the use 
case scenario, that should be another section before the rest (like an usual 
scenario/personas description, boring but helps describing the problem)

a panel with icon lauchers is a core feature i think (that gets remote 
controlled by the teacher)
but as you described it looks like mostly a copy of the osx dock. (in the 
archives of this list there are multiple threads explaining several times why 
this is not going to happen)

dolphin title bar: it's not clear what it is and where this would be 

the implementation of the network is a generic "let's use telepathy" while for 
soe things it will be the way to go (i.e kwhiteboard, some chat features) it 
doesn't describe that in any technical way, that makes the proposal a bit 

tablet part: while it will be important in the future i think would be a bit 
too much to be part of this gsoc just yet.

basically should be adapted with some of the things that we talked about 
during the meeting
