Yes (the alternative would be a time frame where there is no kio_trash at 
all.... not really ideal).

Having two handlers for the trash protocol doesn't really make sense,

IMHO by the time distros want this kind of stability, things will have settled 
a bit more. When it comes to the general split (apps / worskpace / 
frameworks), things are still a bit new.
