AFAIK this shall allow contributors to work at the KDE codebase without much thinking about license problems. For example, mixing (or even linking) GPL v2-only with GPL v3-only code guides to an application that you cannot legally distribute.
Hence, having all code compatible with GPL v2 provides a common compatibility level for all our sources/applications/libraries.

Greetings,
Andreas
