Me neither :)
For many small apps I think it is really senseless to pull the maintainers (if there are any real ones)
to do the releases on their own, why would somebody want to release kfloppy, kedit, kregexpeditor, ...
in a different cycle than the normal KDE stuff? And more important, won't that lead to complete confusion, 
as the i18n team will be facing 100th's of message freezes & release dates, each small app may end with it's own?

btw., atm (perhaps because it is too late) I don't understand the difference between:

"are not trying to follow the KDE release schedule"


"without having to be a part of the KDE releases"

(because that extragear allows use of svn, translations, ... and so on is just the same as being in e.g. kdeutils or an other package)
