IMHO it is not a bug, help is an optional feature, and we have tight size 
constraints on the live images.

We also faced a similar issue with KDE 3 apps dragging in all the KDE 4 stack 
because khelpcenter is now from KDE 4, there too (even though this probably 
doesn't affect any of the live images) we decided to not put a dependency in 
and to simply have help in KDE 3 apps only work if the KDE 4 kdebase-runtime is 
installed (which will always be the case in a KDE installation anyway).
