No, that's not going to work at least without some serious hacking, 
because kdepimlibs requires that kdelibs be built with the
semantic-desktop USE flag set equivalent.

So kmail requires kdepimlibs with semantic-desktop, and if kdepimlibs has 
semantic-desktop, then it required kdelibs the same way.  And if kdelibs 
and kdepimlibs are built with semantic-desktop, why even bother trying to 
turn it off for the rest of kde?
