Could something be coded in as a first run type of thing, where it
installs the ubuntu software center when they log in for the first time
(or as an update that it downloads during the installation)?

I realize that I'm throwing ideas out here, but unless Gnome is adopting
the Ubuntu Software Center for their upstream Package manager (or at
least the framework behind it), then Kubuntu should create as close to
the same manager as Ubuntu has, so they can incorporate some of the
features (UbuntuOne for ecample) and for cohesion.

Again, these are just my opinions and ideas that I'm throwing out. I
don't expect them to go much further than this.

Have a great day
Patrick.

Ubuntu One and the Software Center are completely unrelated. Right now,
KPackageKit is the best Qt program for installing from deb repos. I think
someone is working on a Software-Center-work-alike with Qt though. I don't
remember if that was mentioned on this list or on IRC, but there's a project
in Launchpad for it.
