All true. I didn't make my main point clear enough. S-L-C is not an 
application feature (even if the application obviously need some code for it), 
its workspace feature.

Every user will look in workspace handbook if he want's to know more about it.

Also the availability of the feature depends on the workspace the user 
employs, so stating support for a thing which may or may not be even available 
is not helpful.

All you can safely do is saying "This application supports the KDE Activities 
System" What's the help of that?

There we have a small stakeholder conflict between giving helpful information 
to the quality teams and giving maybe confusing information to end-users. I 
opt for the end-users.

At the end of day, I want stop anyone to add such information to the 
handbooks, I only think our manpower is rather limited (as always...) and the 
should focus on more important things.
