Very good, but...

...there is one think that KDE is superior to GNOME: network transparency. Every KDE application can access remote files via kio slaves, read and write them, even with non-KDE application I can access remote files. In GNOME, gnome-vfs2 is used by a few of apps, it's a shame that I have to copy a file in local with nautilus in order to edit it (a random app: gedit).

Gedit isn't a random app, it is one that illustrates your point. Other apps which use gnome-vfs have no problem writing to remote files. a random app: screem, another random app: bluefish, another random app: gnumeric

Yes, a KIOSlave equivalent is definitely needed. Has there been anytalk of this on the GNOME discussion list or in their Bugzilla?
