I can't say for OS X, but can fill in a bit on linux.

>> BTW, how feasible is it to install KF5 "next to" a working KDE4 install? I know that KDE4 apps continue to work (more or less) normally on a KF5 desktop, but does that mean that all KF5 things install nicely alongside the KDE4 stuff? If not, how feasible is it to build KF5 to install the conflicting parts into its own prefix (but still share version-independent resources with KDE4 and GTk)?
Libraries are all supposed to be coinstallable, except not workspace
libraries. Applications aren't supposed to be coinstallable. For
example you're not supposed to be able to install both Qt4/kdelibs4
based Kompare and Qt5/KF5 based Kompare on the same system. You can
however install the Qt4/kdelibs4 based kalzium next to a Qt5/KF5 based
kanagram or whatnot.
As for kdeedu, libkdeedu is replaced by libkeduvocdocument. libkdeedu
was a git repo that held libkeduvocdocument and a few other libraries
that are no longer used so didn't get ported to Qt5/KF5. the data
files from libkdeedu became kdeedu-data.
Hope that helps.
