For documents created by users, sure. But for app-internal stuff that will
always go to a local file, this is overkill. You don't want a kio job
(which is either async, or uses a dangerous nested event loop) just
to create a local directory or file like a config file or a cache or anything
else you can find under $KDEHOME or ~/.local.

You can't solve every problem around the house with a hammer,
there are different tools for different purposes.
