More or less. There'd still be a KDE.git supermodule to aggregate the various
KDE main modules.
And probably an even larger supermodule aggregating all of KDE's other
supermodules and modules, so that sequential changes can be propagated
correctly. For example, KDE 4.1's tagging, then a new API in
extragear/libs/kipi, then using that API in extragear/graphics/digikam.

The idea is that a private repository is for anything the developer wants. He
could be branching kdelibs for some work of his or he could be starting a new
app. Or publishing his changes to git itself. It doesn't matter.
What matters is that we don't waste 250 MB by making him upload all objects of
kdelibs again :-)
Another important piece of information: every "project" repository is
associated with a mandatory Wiki page, that describes what the repository was
created for (purpose, developers, goals).
