The ABI (Application Binary Inteface) for C++ is still in flux.  A
standard has been established for C++ name mangling, exception
handling, vtable layout, etc -- but there isn't a released GCC that
properly implements it.

No.  If an application was using KDE interfaces and wanted to become
an LSB 1.1 Compliant Application, the application would need to ship
any KDE libraries required for that application to run in a
application-specific library directory.

If you're talking about including KDE in the LSB, yes - this lack of
C++ ABI stability will block any C++ library from being included in
the LSB.
