Do I understand it correctly that KDE Frameworks 5.17 has been released with a 
change that makes existing code break?

Is that because that existing code was broken to start with?

Can someone that understands the code better than me please reach to the 
conclusion, if what needs fixing is KDE Frameworks or kate and if kate needs 
fixing apply the fix on the branches we're releasing and not only in master?
