You are right ;)
To put the katepart into kdelibs, we must split kate into 2 parts:
 - the katepart consisting of (I hope I am right)
        the most stuff in kate/data
  - the kate app consisting of the other stuff ;)

The katepart files should be moved into a libkatepart in kdelibs
to be avaible for other programs (like kate, kdevelop, konqui, ...).

But one big problem with that: We must change how kate manage the
Kate must use the BC compatible view/document interface and not the
kateview.h and 
katedocument.h headers or kate won't work with different kdelibs
