This is generally true. However, mediaplayers are maybe an exception to this. It's interesting why it 
is like that, maybe because listening to music, watching films stimulates arts in people? Pun intended 
:-) And if people like it, why not? It's a matter of taste and people know what they are most 
comfortable with. Many might go with the default interface, but many would also like it different. 
More choice for the user and if presented coherently, the better, no?

Well, you have only limited possibities of how to influence the look via KDE.

I don't agree here, better allow for full skinnability or none. Currently, it feels like a half-way finished  
interface when using skins.
