Then you should consider that the way postgres requires a migration every time 
would exceed a lot of users. 
And (as in the latest openSUSE15.2 where (- for reasons of the distribution) 
-) kmail is broken beyond repair and in my case is even blocking a 
distribution update, there was a supplemental bug that made the use of 
postgres impossible. 

In short: kmail/kontact is unfortunately what your distribution(!) makes out 
of it. 
Comment of a dev: kde is not only KDE PIM. 

I guess it boils down to not exclusive responsibilities that the program is so 
often "in the news" of the users.
