Adding flavours for additional desktop environments depends on developers (at least two) taking interest in a particular desktop environment and committing to supporting it long term.

Despite several attempts over the years, this hasn't happened for GNOME yet and I don't envision this to be successful for Enlightment. Adding such support is not particularly difficult, but it requires constant attention of developers who use said desktop environment themselves (know which traps to look for, which applications fit best into the general environment, know when there are current problems with these packages in Debian and/ or how to fix or work around them, are familiar with the basic roadmap for these projects, to align them with our own) and care about it; some experience about the internal (startup-) infrastructure of aptosid would be required as well.

Technically speaking, there shouldn't be fundamental problems with supporting almost anything, but it needs enough manpower in our project to make it reality and to keep it going long term.

So, while I'm not going to say never, chances for an Enlightment flavour are only minimal and close to non-existent.

Wish I could help, but I'm no developer.
KDE is good for me.
Thanks.
