I think the real question is: why doesn't qt-copy-4.1's phonon have the stuff that is in branches/phonon/4.2.
This is what causes the compilation error.
From your reply I assume the answer is: qt-4.1's phonon is not recent enough, but then you write
"Trolltech is free to use the 4.2 branch or even the 4.1 branch", which confuses me. If TT keeps using the
4.1 branch, kdebase will never compile with Qt's phonon, will it?

No, a much simpler idea would be:
kdesupport/phonon contains whichever phonon stable-branch is needed for the rest of KDE
branches/work/phonon/trunk or something like that is where unstable phonon features are developed
