The reason behind the change I discussed with David is exactly what you 
(Jakob) said before:

having a single "Back" action for both web-browsing and document-navigation 
leads to quite big problems in user experience.
Imagine that you are browsing something in konqueror, then click on a document 
and Okular is loaded embedded in the current tab. In this case, the 
document-navigation "Back" action of Okular would simply replace the 
web-browsing one offered by konqueror, thus the user would have -no- choices 
to go back to the previous page in the konqueror history of that tab; and 
more they would try to use the Back action, that of course would not do what 
they expect to. Ditto for the "Forward" action.
The case? http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=106773

Changing the behaviour of standard actions is a no-no, sorry.
