Thanks for the clarity.  As hinted in my previous post, I consider
that you (KDE maintainer in general) are totally empowered to take it

Still, I've an unanswered curiosity which might help in the
debate. Beside the per-user setting, is there any system-wide setting
that the local sysadm can trigger to have DRM-free okular by default
for all its users?

While I see as reasonable that you took this choice, I see similarly
reasonable that you give the choice to sysadms to make a different
choice easily.  If this thread has shown something, is that the choice
is a debatable one, hence it is very likely that sysadms out there
will have such a desire.

Many thanks in advance,

    issue to the CTTE, now that is clear that on your side the issue
    is closed
