Yes, that's a misconception -- I don't think any of the people working on 
KDevelop sees it as a KDE-only IDE. It's certainly very suitable to develop 
KDE apps mostly because of the choice of supported technologies, but in no way 
limited to that.

The former would be quite some effort (or not?) ... the latter can basically 
be done in an hour, so I'm not sure the former is worth it.
The GHNS stuff is being maintained, the problem with it is that the only 
provider which is actually working and active ( is "non-free" 
(non-OSS backend code) and not hosted by KDE, thus reportedly a bit painful to 
deal with if you want e.g. a new category for templates.
