well, do you know what are the benefits KMS represents?
is not only about fancy boot experience (but it really make it look more polished) but it also means faster boot, fast suspend/resume (this is really important) and native resolution/accelerated graphics without X (and this also means native text resolution in ttys)
so i believe KMS is as important as Xrandr. as for KDE, i think nvidia really should work to make it work properly (dont care whose fault it is but its broken) . its a shame that intel and ati (in its most recent driver) work better than my expensive nvidia card.
