FWIW, I haven't found kde4 significantly less customizable in general.  
True, there's some stuff still broken yet (including khotkeys multikey, 
my primary way of launching apps in kde3 -- and kde4 now that I setup my 
own scripted solution to handle it), way to much IMO to be rated as ready 
for ordinary use (except by devs, for developing their own apps), but 
it's generally customizable.

One could argue it's /more/ customizable in may ways... such as just what 
sort of stuff can go on the desktop.
