One small comment: all the features you comment apply only to Plasma, not to 
KDE as a whole. Sure, Plasma is the flagship product of KDE 4, and since it 
implements the desktop in a desktop environment, is a very fundamental part, 
but still is not the whole KDE.

That said, probably you can get updated answers in this wiki page:

More in particular, this answers your third point:

The questions you answer are maybe answered in more detail in Aaron Seigo's 
weblog. Try some search on
