Well, it goes on to say:

"However, team B is not responsible to do that for team A. If one team takes action to make co-installability possible (changing name spaces etc.) the other group is not allowed to interfere e.g. by changing their name spaces into the same names. "

This means that the Calligra team is not responsible for ensuring co-installability. All we have promised is not to hamper Thomas' efforts at reaching co-installability, so we won't rename our Ko* header files to K* header files (I wonder though at thinking behind that move, wasn't there a rule that only kdelibs classes could be K*). Frankly, I haven't got a good overview of everything that's needed to make co-installability really work.

In the end, it's no priority for us to make it possible for people to install KOffice next to Calligra.
