Once I settled some private problems (both broken bike and computer, I feel so

How is the integration with Solid done exactly? I see that there are no remote 
control devices yet part of the Solid layer in kdelibs*, instead classes like 
LircRemoteControl as part of Solid modules in kdebase/workspace**. Is there 
some description which, why and how the architecture has been done and what 
use cases you considered? What are the future plans, if any?
