One of the key features of Kontact is that it fully supports running all the 
individual components stand-alone as well, so each app which is part of 
Kontact has and maintains its own identity. So I think we should really keep 
the individual brands (especially KMail and also KOrganizer). They have a 
long tradition and it would be a loss to give them up.
