I agree with the latter and actually thought the new theme manager would be 
supporting this. On the other hand,  it wouldn't be a bad idea to include the 
most popular (new) iconsets and themes by default. A poll on KDE-look could 
be used to find out which to include.

Does anybody know whether there are plans to do something similar into KDE for 
e.g. and to show (or even) download 
KDE and KDE-applications? Up to now I have seen kpackage's option for 
external sources and a search menu for rpms on kde-apps. I understand that 
depending on their distro people use YasT, apt, yum, emerge, etc. for 
updating applications. 

Why not offer the possibility to search/explore new KDE applications and 
download them to a local folder for installation. They should, however, be 
made aware of the fact that this can damage their system ;).
