In KDE 4.6.2, the 2nd entry 'Actvities' in the window menu (the one left in 
the title bar) does allow this. Similar to the first entry, where you can 
set on which desktops the application should show up.

Do you have this menu entry? Some days ago I was also looking for this, and 
did not find it. I wonder how I could overlook this, but maybe it was not 
there at this moment? My KDE was acting somewhat weird then, konqueror was 
suddenly closing all tabs without the usual confirmation dialog, konqueror 
was hanging when opening the settings dialog, kontact's save file dialog 
sometimes also was hanging and I had to kill it. All these problems went 
away when I logged out and in again.
