Sometimes seing only the beginning of the lines is enough for me, so I can use 
big windows with partial overlap and not have to deal with linewrapping.
Also I may deal with different revisions of files, they have the same name but 
reside in different folders... so using different programs to display them 
helps me remember which is which.

It is also not true you cannot oppen 2 Kate windows, AFAIK it is possible from 
Kate but not directly from Konqueror.
