Rationale? Hmm... take a closer look at kmdi and kdockwidget sources ;)
Simple Ideal already does what is necessary for Ideal mode and even more
(splitting windows). But it will never support other mdi modes.

You can try it. Go to user interface settings in KDevelop and choose
simple ideal mode (you should have KDevelop HEAD). I work with it every day.
KDevAssistant already runs in simple ideal mode by default and I'm planning to
make it default for KDevelop as well after I polish splittings windows.

You can either work on KDevelop 3.2/HEAD implementation of simple ideal
or on KDE4 port (which will be committed soon).

I don't expect that large changes are necessary. Just a bit of polishing.
