All KDE applications require network connectivity of one level or another.
Think of DCOP, for instance. I agree with you that the classes are in the
wrong place: they should be in Qt or even lower.
The result of that is that neither libDCOP nor aRts can use those classes.

SSL classes: libqca
network classes: libkdecore
certificate management and UI: libkio
KSecureSocket could go in either of the latter two.
