Yes the bookmarks menu uses a separate action collection so that the bookmarks don't
show up in the toolbar editor, as the comment says. No shortcuts there, so no problem.
I thought there were many more standalone action collections.... ah yeah there are some
as member vars, too:
konqguiclients.h: KActionCollection m_actionCollection;

Assuming "it" means shortcuts: yes, it has always been a requirement to associate
the action or the collection with a widget, for shortcuts to work; in kde3 too.
