KDE Desktop (non-)positioning

Why does the KDE desktop have such little icon-positioning smarts? I can 
download, or drag-and-drop files to my desktop and it's anyone's guess 
where the file's icon will go. It might be where I drop it, or it might 
not. Files I open from the desktop that create a backup file might have 
the backup appear next to the original icon, or maybe not. There's also no 
automatic align-to-grid setting. Geez, Windows and every other GUI has 
been able to do this since the early 1990s, so why can't KDE?
