In some areas this indeed would have been preferrable. I am migrating away 
from using KDE as my main desktop because of the errant ways it took - the 
whole Nepomuk and Akonadi mess is - well a mess. There is little redeeming 
features that they bring for all the bloat and the requirements to become a 
database specialist (of differing databases as they are switched too often).
KMail 2 is still unusable for daily use - so I am migrating from KMail to 
Thunderbird. Digikam will be another casualty of the switch as Akonadi and 
Nepomuk integration scatters information all over the place (or is lost on a 
regular basis when one of their databases acts up which they often do) - so 
having a more stable, dedicated basis for storage (which isn't messed up by 
the rest of the desktop environment on a regular basis) would be highly 
desireable, as it currently stands I'll just switch for my organizing needs to 
another program...
