 That's what the document refers to as "KDE Workspace". And it can be still 
the marketing message for it - "Like KDE apps? They'll be even better when 
run in the KDE Workspace!"

 Speaking of which, from the document:

"KDE applications use the KDE platform as a toolkit and to integrate with 
desktop standards, so they can be run on various desktop implementations, be 
it GNOME, Windows, or MacOS."

 Or, of course, the KDE Workspace :) ?
