Isn't it so that extragear is for those who for one reason or the other 
are not trying to follow the KDE release schedule? 
 Maintaining an application in extragear means also that it might not be 
translated like the rest as the translators are busy with translating 
the "main" KDE packages. From my POV if the application developer 
doesn't want to have different release schedule from the rest of KDE, 
than being it extragear has several disadvantages.

I was mainly talking about creating the "official" release packages (the 
source tarballs).
