And thereby screwing all 3rd party users that still try to keep up with KDE 
and use it?

I don't think that enforcing a policy by technical tools is the right way to 
go. I'd be fine in adding those #define's to kdebase/*, but not to kdelibs so 
that anyone trying to compile his 3rd party app against kdelibs has to suffer.
