just answering for myself, but it seems to be the same as Alex D. is saying:
the four points listed in the draft are where we see the focus of KDE.
It would be stupid to exclude projects which support those.
KDE never did that, why should we start with that (arts, unsermake, icecream, 
eigen, etc...)
Still we don't see linear algebra libraries or build tools as the main goal 
KDE is trying to achieve (...says the guy who maintained the KDE buildsystem 
for more than 7 years).
