Totally, we came to the same conclusion while discussing this on IRC. But, 
when we listed the things that needed to be done, it came out that it is a 
huge undertaking. Especially that XMLGUI, the library that manage Krita's 
menu and toolbar is rather inflexible, at some point of KDE4, a replacement 
(liveui ?) might appear that solves that issue. That said, if someone is 
interested by the project, we can work with him/her to define a project that 
would be more limited, but more reasonable, but still a step in the right 
direction for the full workspace proposal.

And also have the possibility to have an entry in your system menu that would 
directly launch the "sketch" profile.
