The only choices for live system are gnome and kde; lxde is not an
option. There is another live, not installable, for rescue, that uses xfce.
And there is another live, that can not be used to play with, only to
install: the old DVD. That one allows all available choices in the final

The lives install as they are, you have no choice at all. Whatever the
designer designed, you use.

Not at all, because nepomuk is disabled, and akonadi only gets started if you run a program that uses it (KMail f.e.), it doesn’t run by default.
I don’t care about Windows (vfat, fat32), so can the USB be formatted ext2 with persistence?
No need to fromat it. If you copy the ISO image to the USB it is overwritten anyway.
And for 13.1 it is persistent, i.e. if you install some package or change settings it will ne remembered on the LiveUSB from then on f.e.
Anyone know how KDE Lightweight (KLyde) is progressing?
Well, the last I’ve heard is, that they are planning to split up the amarok package.
But many packaging and defaults changes from KLyde are already in standard openSUSE for a while.
