I would personally prefer using Lamp CMS only because it integrates directly with other popular platforms like Google+ and Facebook. This is less friction for people to post questions and answers without having to sign up for yet another account. Not sure if social media integration is considered a 'dependency' though.

I would personally much prefer integrating this into the KDE
infrastructure rather than KDE going to Stack Exchange:

StackExchange is a commercial entity without open source accessbility
to the implementation. Also, you need to comply with what
StackExchange likes in the end of the day.
