A few things come to mind..
1. Create bug reports. But they will likely be closed as invalid or won't
fix since they "think" the're doing the right thing.
2. Fork.

I did fork frameworkintegration for a very short time because the noto font
requirement was completely screwing my system up. They basically said i
should just swallow it and learn to live with it. Which i refused so i
forked, but it turned out to be more easily fixable by blacklisting some
weird fonts in the noto package then keeping a fork alive.

I really don't see why they are heading this way.

Isn't it possible to have the platform theme as it was before (with no
plasma deps) for others to use and then some "more fancy" plugin on top of
that which would implement just the plasma specific things? That way
everyone would be happy.
