Well technically not. KDE mostly supplements Qt, A few objects here and
there make use of some Qt features. The gobject, glib combination are bound
up in numerous low level system services and supplementary libraries that
have nothing to do do with GUIs, even I think on a KDE system.

That said, if system GUI capable APIs are to be exposed on the standard
library, those should be Win32, Cocoa, and GTK+.
