Cut&paste is completely compatible between KDE and GNOME apps and has been for
a long time now! The Qt clipboard bug where it mixed up PRIMARY (selection) and
CLIPBOARD was fixed ages ago.
Might just be me, but in kdevelop (the only kde application i use) i
always end up screwing cut and paste up, since ctrl-c/v and
middle-mouse-button seem to interact at random.

Run kcontrol and you can set your file associations. Getting Kontact to run
your GNOME applications when you open a file or URL in it is not hard. The
default browser for KDE apps is the setting for "text/html".
Why would i have to run kcontrol ? I mean i am using a Gnome desktop,
not a KDE one.

Just set them to the same thing. KDE is very flexible, it's possible to get it
to match the GNOME configuration very closely.
So you are suggesting that everybody will set all settings twice, one
time for Gnome and one time for KDE? This is exactly the problem with a
Gnome and KDE mix, it is a PITA.
