It's a runtime dependency, that doesn't seem to be a new dependency.

As far as I understand it's not really a problem. Right now we can assume
that kde-runtime is installed. Otherwise KIcon won't work properly either,

What would happen if kde-runtime wasn't installed when running this? If
it's not a crash, i'd say it's fine :).
