does it need to be? if so, that means that there will be apps that don't use 
it via knotify, which isn't great for reasons of consistency; what would be 
extended exactly?

if there are real use cases, then that's one thing. if there are theoretical 
ones, then i'd recommend putting it in knotify until such time as an 
application actually has need to extend it and then at that point consider 
moving it to kdelibs...
