KDE does have support AFAIK, although its no long the default. If you 
can get used to the blank-space network icon, then I recommend KDE as 
there are many pluses.


I don't believe Qubes is actually going to migrate to Gnome. There was 
an aborted attempt and Gnome 3's paradigm (tablet touch UI, melded 
WM/app widgets) doesn't seem compatible with Qubes' concept.

There are minor issues with KDE - the most significant is that the
sys-net icon does not appear - there's a blank icon there. Other than
that KDE works fine. In fact, that's offset by the ease of menu
manipulation, use of activities to ensure separation of qube windows etc
etc.
This is completley separate from using mainly Gnome programs.

Also, see https://www.qubes-os.org/doc/kde/. Not sure if it's been 
updated for 4.0.
