However, the fact remains that:

Currently KDE3 upstream project is called "Trinity".

2) KDE3 is doesn't have anyone committed fully to keeping it maintained
in openSUSE

Is it just your conviction?

3) Its proponents aren't claiming that it should be a popular option --
just that they want it available.

Mmmm. Why it should not be a popular option?

These issues make a pretty clear case for why it shouldn't be part of an
official release. Without committed people supporting it, any issues
that arise make the entire release look bad.

If the issue is to make it easy to install, then perhaps one solution
might be to add the ability (if it doesn't already exist) to add
external repositories and patterns early in the installation process.
