Actually replacing libkscan was part of the plan :)
Currently libkscan is 'only' a kscan KIO plugin that is a frontend to sane. 
ksaneplugin (just moved to kdegraphics) is a dropin replacement for libkscan 
as long as libksane is available.
(sane can also be used on OSX and to some extent on Win32 too)

If I'm not mistaken there where/is some interest in using libkipi and kipi 
plugins also in KOffice if possible too.
