It could live separately, but:
* I'd like to see other frameworks to be versioned as well (kcalcore, kmime,
* If frameworks is supposed to be an inclusive umbrella rather than something
exclusive, the versioning policy is IMO too restrictive
So from my perspective this isn't so much about KIMAP, but about having
versioned frameworks, I just took KIMAP as a posterchild because that's where
I'm maintainer and where I know it would be benefical for sure.
