Then they will not have configurable web-shortcuts, or if we really want that, 
we need a widget for doing so, but not if it means making things more 
difficult for the "regular KDE workspace user". I.e. the app-specific 
configuration should sit on top of the global configuration,
so that KDE-worskpace users can set things globally and standalone-app users 
can set things from within the app.

This is the "solution that makes everyone happy" by making things over-

The alternative, web shortcuts not being configurable unless you use a KDE 
workspace, is IMHO valid too.

But worsening the experience for our primary target audience in order to 
possibly improve the experience of our secondary target audience is IMHO a bad
