Sounds like you would want to propose that on the kwrite-devel mailing list 
instead (as it's based on KTextEditor). Potentially for integration upstream.

I had a quick look at the tree / commit history. I'd recommend to ...

- just remove any traces of KDE4 
- squash most your commits before proposing this to upstream 
  - Tings like "fix typo", etc., can go
  - The KF5 port itself likely just needs to be one big commit

Note: I have no personal interest in the plugin myself, but maybe the KTE 
authors have.
