there is not yet a real LDAP schema standard for this.
However, mozilla is working on it, and it's possible that we will have a
schema before thunderbid 1.6 is out.
You can look into thunderbird's bugzilla and search for LDAP bugs, it's
discussed there.
I guess once mozilla has defined a standard schema, KDE will/can follow
and implement them.
Last time I checked, there was a draft schema available that looked good
to mozilla's devs so one could probably implement it in KDE's trunk.

You might want to speak to kdepim people first, they probably follow
closely that point.
