Your analysis is right. The latter was the basis of my argument.

I give up on /opt, it's impossible to put files in /opt even if FHS allows 
it. I should also give up on /usr/lib/kde3 because nobody liked that idea; 
I've asked people on #kde and here on debian-kde now, it's enough. The 
/usr/share/kde change that calc said he's going to make should be enough.
