I don't see where the problem is here, "required" is always an expression
of "minimum required version", not "exact required version". At least

However in this particular case the sdo-developers have the "last say" in
which versions are compatible, by providing a
SharedDesktopOntologiesConfigVersion.cmake file (see man cmake,
find_package paragraph about the Config mode). So apparently that file
defines that both versions are compatible.

The only exception to this is when the EXACT keyword is used to
find_package, but this is not the case in kdelibs (as far as I can see).
