I really really think that KDE wants you to distribute the software in
distributions. They need to have a more careful license so that the
paranoid (like you) can distribute it.

Store owners don't want you to shop life. KDE wants there program to be
distributed in linux/BSD distributions. If not while would they have
the "KDE Ships" page (http://www.kde.org/kdeships.html) which lists all
the distributions that use it.
