Can you expand on why "you are going to need it"?

I install workspace only. OK, I have a workspace.
It works, but it has limited functionality obviously.
No calculator -> I install kcalc
No text editor -> I install kwrite
No file manager -> I install dolphin
No support for sftp or thumbnails in dolphin -> I install kio-extras.

(of course this is written as a compiling-from-scratch type setup, in practice 
the binary package for dolphin would bring it in as a dependency)

Ah. Is this about kio_desktop? That one should *definitely* be in workspace.
But it doesn't have to be in kio-extras.
