I would do the same like for frameworks.

All projects that are included in kde applications x.xx would have a CMake variable like the frameworks

set(KF5_VERSION "5.12.0") # handled by release scripts

but (KDE Applications or whatever):

set(KA5_VERSION "15.04") # handled by release scripts

and after each release that gets auto-incremented to the next one.

Applications that want to use that, then can just define their own version based on this var.
Applications that don't want to use that, don't need to do anything.
