I think we could relax that requeriments for KDE 3.5.x, moreover the "no new 
user-visible messages" already got broken, see

I also think we should not release a KDE 3.6 because it will lead to another 
similar case as 3.5, that was supposed to be only an application release with 
minor changes and it has ended beign a full release
