My reading was that he worried about *non-KDE* apps doing similar things
without any interaction with Akonadi.

So there are now two independant databases, one in KDE and one in Gnome.
Those of us who use a mixture of apps are running both of them. We're
also running two key managers (gnome-key and kwallet) which don't appear
to talk to each other. I'm sure I could think of other examples.

Isn't this the sort of thing that Freedesktop is supposed to prevent?
