Yes your right. I can only think of cases like
- a part isn't aware of being loaded by khtml and fails to interpret
the url correctly, or just
  simplifies the resolving. Probably just fixing the kparts would do.
- network apps working at a specific domain, like khtml/aggregator/media-apps(eg
  playlists))/kpdf can use kparts to show parts and want to set the domain as a
  restriction on its capabilities. But I can't think of a real case
for this where this would
  make a difference ..
