You can apply that on really *anything* - the obvious (claimed) failure is "Qt breaks somehow Plasma" because either
a) a client relied on undocumented behavior (client bug) or
b) a foundation broke documented API/ABI/Behavior (foundation bug)

Also your list implies that one never can update KDE, because that breaks GNOME, requires a kernel update and whatnot.

That implies the Linux SW stack is crap. Point taken.
