KGlocalAccel and KNotify usage

hi all...

i just discovered, while tracking down why khotkeys has decided to start 
registering global accels every time a window is shown or hidden, that 
KGlobalAccel sends out a KNotify request every time a global accel is pressed.

is this really useful or needed? the reason i ask is that this just adds more 
context switches (roundtripping between dbus, knotify4 and kded) and more 
processing for something that i can't figure out what the user benefit of is.

is there any reason to keep this or can it be removed?
