With the emphasis on *could*. Not that it should actually be done. We wouldn't
like KDE become Mozilla-like bloatware.

As long as scripting is purely used for *custom* and third-party extensions,
it's ok. Starting to reimplement large parts of KDE itself in a scripting
language will prove eventually detrimental in terms of efficiency and
I also warn about "base" applications that ought to be extended by
(third-party) extensions. The "base" applications are usually not usable on
their own, and the extensions do not undergo the same thorough QA procedures
like the base.
