To me it sounds like some of those things could be regrouped now. What about 
also bringing the akonadi server on board? Having a bigger akonadi framework 
containing server (right now in kdesupport), some access libs and a few 
default plugins would make sense (it looks like a KIO like framework).

This one looks like a dumping ground of random things. Maybe some of it should 
move in other frameworks?

Definitely not a framework. Are all the ioslaves in there still used? I think 
at least some of them can be let go. The others could go in kio-extras I

Probably should go in kdepim or kontact itself. Similarly the content of the 
kdelibs/interfaces folder moved out of KF5.

Maybe deserves a better name? kidentitymanagement?

I suspect it could get a better name, but couldn't decide yet. :-)
Also I wonder if some of it could/should go in ktexteditor? But I don't know 
the respective feature sets enough to be sure.

Looks like another dumping ground of random classes. Each class should likely 
find a new home.

Couldn't that be merged with gpgme++? This one already builds several variants 
depending what it finds on the platform, why not treat the Qt integration in 
the same way?

I tried to point out things which would be harder to address after the split. 
So I think we should have discussions and decisions about the points above 
before being able to proceed.
