Then maybe those programs should be moved to -apps as well ?

No. it is also a matter of the source location, as we are working on
coinstallation of ((kde3 + (kde4base-runtime, kde4libs, kde4pimlibs))
with one set of development files.)  or ((kde4 + kde3libs) with one set
of development files)

Having the common files in -workspace or in -apps doesn't conflict with
this. Having the common files in -runtime does.
