Well, that's an upstream issue, really. And perhaps more importantly, KDE 
uses PolicyKit policies autogenerated from "KAuth actions", so I don't know 
how feasible it is to make it use a policy defined by something different 
instead. KAuth is designed to hide the details of PolicyKit from developers 
(in fact, there is even a Mac backend using OS X's 
authentication&authorization framework instead).
