 Yeah that should work no problem, as far I as I know the only real
difference between each is the desktop environment so regular Ubuntu with
KDE really is Kubuntu

  Does this work both ways? Does "apt/apt-get" have that capability?

  I know I can do:
  sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop

  and then do:
  sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop

  but if I wasn't happy with kubuntu could I do:
  sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop

  and get back to ubuntu?

  Being able to reload would be a great feature to have.
