There are applications and kioslaves in kdebase-runtime which depends on
this files. Having this in kdebase-apps means you have to install
kdebase-apps to run apps from kdebase-runtime. This looks not good to
me, kdebase-runtime is the right location for it.

This is an issue related to installing the .directory files not where it
is located in the source and should be discussed independent. Do you
have any suggestions about a better install location ?
