Kate and Quanta do not have the same purpose.
Kate is a general purpose editor, with extensions for programming, etc.
Quanta is mainly an editor for textual data which has a defined structure, 
such as XML or HTML.
In fact Quanta uses Kate as its default editor.

Quanta+ is a KDE application and it should be able to use the KIO 
architecture as well as Kate.
