frameworks already have groups: the tiers, and the type (functional, etc.).
I think a third orthogonal grouping is too much.
"kdelibs" is merely an historical thing at this point.

The vision of the frameworks developers is that other frameworks that were not 
in kdelibs before, are very welcome to join the "frameworks" project, whether 
they come from kdepimlibs, libkdegames, etc.
