The latest versions are so far beyond Gnome in terms of performance, cleanliness and code quality, it isn't even in the same ballpark anymore.

You clearly have no clue what you're talking about. We might argue about "performance" and "cleanliness". But please, don't tell me about KDE code quality!

Did it ever occured to you, why the biggest/best/most-advanced Linux applications we have are written in G-technologies? (GObject, Gtk, GStreamer, Glib) This is solely because the G-API is superior to Qt/Kde API and developers are smart enough to see that.

then why has Havoc P, representing Red Hat, clearly stated that the introduction of Mono into Gnome would mean Red Hat will either fork or abandon Gnome?

Havoc P, in the same blog entry, has also said:

...Red Hat not shipping Mono is currently a can't rather than a won't. Making it worse, we are not able to spell out all the facts on why we can't. In fact, none of the Red Hat engineers (including myself) knows all the facts (and we couldn't share them in public if we did)...

so basically, I don't care. It simply doesn't hold any water.

Times have changed and .NET is pretty much dead so I don't see much reason to use Mono.

Hint: Mono and mono-enabled applications are (likely) already a part of your Linux distribution. You clearly missed the moment they killed Kennedy.
