They need to go thorugh kdereview first and need kdegraphics maintainer to get
added to the module.
From my i18n perspective it seems worrying none of the two projects has a
Messages.sh file (not sure if both needed it but at least libkmap seems to
have i18n calls).

Unless you had the intention to include those libraries in the feature plan,
no, it is not compatible with the release rules.
That doesn't mean that if the rest (especially kdegraphics maintainer) agrees
we can make an exception.
