Indeed this makes it hard on kconf_update scripts.
This is something that we could change at the same time we are changing
kglobalaccel to use action names instead of translated names.
Then we could use ':' as separator or something... like this
We don't use ':' in kcomponentdata names AFAIK; and it's easy to 
Q_ASSERT(!componentName.contains(':')); in the kglobalaccel code to
make sure we tell the app author soon enough about the issue :)
