Well the question is whether "all you need" includes 50 kioslaves.
It depends on the need. Not all KIO users need 50 kioslaves.
In fact when I deployed recently for a company, they didn't even need half of 
the ones that are already in kio.

I think kio-extras makes sense (especially since it brings other dependencies, 
not just "more code"). I just think it should be either a framework or treated 
like an app, but definitely not a workspace thing.
