Default Android 4.4

I'm sure most of you have heard by now that kitkat has been released and it comes with support for older devices, such as the One V. I really wanted to talk about what we are all thinking: Will we get Android 4.4? I'm by no means a developer, im just curious as to how the community would go about bringing kitkat and would it actually be a possibility.

P.S. I do know that HTC wouldn't bother trying to push the update to us so that's pretty much off the table

Knowing HTC both the HOX and the HOX+ won't get it either.
