Better choice of extras?

I want to install the *-restricted-extras package, and I can't make up my mind whether I should install kubuntu-restricted-extras or ubuntu-restricted-extras.

The kubuntu-restricted-extras option wants to install more than 100 dependencies, including some so-called KDE 4 "runtime" files, which makes me nervous. I've been finding KDE 4 very intrusive since it's been out, always forcing its way and trying to make people give up on 3.5 by sheer imposition.

The ubuntu-restricted-extras option wants to install 60 dependencies, including some Gnome components. I suppose I would not get any KDE integration?

I don't know. Which one do you experts recommend?
