In practice: ​Fair enough if this also applies to, say, browsers installed
on the same OS.
Without that the experience is academical and ​sets us apart in a minimal
population. I don't even know if it's possible to have a Linux system
without curl, bash etc., all of these components have own visions of

"xxxxx does not track" in practice leads to something like "no offline
capabilities enabled by default". The question about "tracking" is a
special hypothetical consequence of (presumed) lack of trust to KDE
developers and/or KDE distributors. Where one group has no 100% control (in
positive sense) over the other.

Moreover let me analyse :how can Plasma affect this behaviour in apps when
they are loosely connected as there's no longer a thing like "KDE app"? :)
I'd rather apply the statement about KF5, even it's still a marginal
feature because; as it was said in this thread already any application is
free to have online capabilities. IMHO, while it's not easy to design, it
would improve/modernize many of them but I am not pushing for anything.
