I think you do not need to use it in all (non-multithreaded) kipi-plugins.
First, I think most plugins provide a modal dialog, so the host application is blocked anyway.
If the host application is doing some multithreaded work while the plugin is running, that's a problem: using DDebug won't help, the mutex of the plugin will be different from the mutex of the host app, so you can with the same effect not use any mutex at all.
That's a limitation of wrapping a common library function with a application-private mutex, the real solution (for the future) is to make kdDebug thread-safe.
