You don't have to move out ~/.local, it contains data. 
Akonadi store its configuration files in ~/config and store its data in 
~/.local/share/Akonadi (plus the mysql.conf file)
Other folders under ~/.local/share may store data used by Akonadi like 
contacts and local-mail (it depends on your configuration). Most emails are 
still stored in ~/.kde/share/apps/kmail folder.
You may decide to remove the ~/.local/share/Akonadi folder to rebuild the 
database, but you don't need to.
Neither one need to move the entire ~/.kde tree (in most testing case), just 
change ~/.kde/share/config
