I think you are wrong. If the current version of Kontact doesn't run 
with the older version of KDE that's installed on the desktops of the 
enterprise users then there's nothing the packager/distributor can do 
about it. His only choices are:

- Don't upgrade to the new version of Kontact. -> The enterprise user 
will have to live with the bugs of the older version of Kontact and 
without the features of the newer version of Kontact.

- Upgrade Kontact and everything else of KDE. -> The enterprise user 
will have to pay significantly more because instead of simply 
installing a new version of Kontact a new version of KDE has to be 
installed and on top of that the configuration of the new version has 
to be tweaked so that the users are not affected by changes in KDE, 
e.g. in case we've once again decided that it's time for a new default 
window/icon style in KDE.
