question on the recent kde packages updates in sid

Hello Debian-KDE users !

For the sid users here, I get the following message on a
(not all may be kde, but most are)
"apt-get -d -y dist-upgrade"

The following packages will be REMOVED:
  kdebase ksysguard
The following packages have been kept back
  ark kamera kappfinder kate kcalc kcharselect kcmlinuz kcoloredit kcontrol kcron kdat kdeadmin kdeadmin-kfile-plugins
  kdebase-bin kdebase-kio-plugins kdegraphics kdegraphics-kfile-plugins kdelibs kdelibs-bin kdelibs-data kdelibs4 kdelibs4-dev
  kdepasswd kdeprint kdesktop kdessh kdeutils kdf kdm kdvi kedit kfax kfind kfloppy kghostview khelpcenter khexedit kicker
  kiconedit kjots klaptopdaemon klipper kmenuedit kmrml konqueror konqueror-nsplugins konsole kooka kpackage kpager kpaint
  kpersonalizer kpovmodeler kruler ksim ksmserver ksnapshot ksplash ksysv ktimer ktip kuickshow kuser kview kviewshell kwin
  kxconfig libarts1 libarts1-dev libartsc0 libartsc0-dev libkonq4 libkregexpeditor libkscan1 secpolicy vorbis-tools
29 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 2 to remove and 76  not upgraded.

I am reluctant to proceed with the upgrade before I understand why
and if it is OK for kdebase to be removed.

Anyone answer this ?
