Thankfully, I deleted the blank/unused entries here, before upgrading all 
my kdepim packages to 4.6 (while they were still 4.4).  IMO that made the 
akonadi kmail migration that much less confusing, as I didn't have all 
those empty resources doing nothing to confuse me.

It was a bit scary to do, but I figured if it was either empty or a dupe, 
I should be able to safely delete it, and that turned out to be correct.  
Plus, back then the only real resource I had to worry about was the 
address book, unlike now, when I have all the mail resources too.  Thus 
there was less chance of deleting something I actually needed, back 
then.  (That was actually one reason I did it then, as I knew the kmail 
migration was going to happen eventually, and better to do it when I 
didn't have a lot to lose than when I did...)

Bottom line, you're correct, those empty ones should be safely 
deletable.  But I'm glad I did it here when the stakes were smaller if I 
screwed up.
