I'm not sure I will like this idea.
First off, it will break many (all?) scripts, including the widely used 
kdesvn-build. Then, compiling kdesupport has always been great for me so that 
I didn't have to wonder around look for each individual subpackage 
(especially on distros that I do not know, or that are quite strict as far as 
backporting policy goes), but I simply had one more module to 
checkout/install like any other kde module.

I'm ok by treating kdesupport as external dependency, less ok if I can't 
compile it anymore to build KDE.
