Right. So you are objecting to a patch which only adds a function in kdelibs and does not harm any existing applications at all. 

You did avoid commenting  on the bits about giving application maintainers a choice to do it another way than by using khelpcenter.

You also ignore the remark that I'm not talking about replacing the current policy about documentation. docbook it is for all applications in all main kde modules. 

I really find it sad that you are not allowing people who want to experiment with another kind of user documentation. I think we generally failed in providing user help. Both content and system are below avarage. This patch gives the oppertunity to try it a different way, by using a wiki and therefor making it editable by users itself. I can see that there are potential problems, but I do not consider them worse than what we have now.
