Please elaborate on what needs to be done for KParts and KXMLGUI. AFAIK, 
nobody has ever suggested rewriting them from the scratch.

This list I asked is not of features that need to be there, but of 
features that still need to be *developed*. I can understand that there 
is some work required on KParts to bugfix it, but is it so much work that 
it's close to a major overhauling?
