Ben and I discussed it today and we think there is usefulness in one level of subtree within the
Applications product, to be able to keep the 'groups' like kdegraphics, kdemultimedia etc. which
are useful in order to have a maintainer per 'group' (as reinforced by the release team recently).

But yes, only one level, and AFAICS only useful in Applications.
kactivities (to pick your example) would be "at the root of" Frameworks, no sub-path needed.
