libkscreen is mainly for reading and settings X configuration. That's quite 
workspace-specific. For use-cases typical for apps, there's way easier API 
(QScreen, for example).

libmm-qt ... I dunno, why would an app use it? (I can construct a weird use-
case, but in the end, information about modem setup is a system / workspace-
specific feature, not something typically done in apps.

There are no hard boundaries, much depends on interpretation, but given it's 
debatable, I think keeping these things together in kde/workspace makes sense.
