well, kdevplatform and koffice/guiutils are not part of kdelibs,but if part of 
them could be really useful for kde development i wouldn't seem why not 
considering a promotion of such parts to kdelibs, like happened to libplasma.

so think it's a bit different, libplasma didn't make big concern when was 
included in kdelibs and such shouldn't make big problems when used in 
i really didn't imagine that patch would have caused such a storm and i'm  
sad, because i woud love libplasma could be considered a first class citizen 
of the kde libraries like all the other kdelibs parts.
of course ui-wise it doesn't make sense to use it everywhere, but where it 
does i don't really see why not
