No it's there, and it seems way much more *stable* then the names in facts.

Like all the subclass of KSelectAction, they all have small codes.
For now it's a small piece of code, but with time it can(should) grow
to have a configuration dialog to only show some off them.

I know at least, konqueror, konsole, near all the kopete plugin (if
they some don't use it they really should in fact),
Not sur of them but I think should also use it, konversation, ksirc,
maybe koffice to import some files, maybe also ktorrent to select the
correct encoding of it's content ...
And maybe some that I don't think about.
