Hum, since I was out for deb packages for Jessie, some digging 
turned up [1], which I parsed as "Enterprise 3.5.10 (a.k.a E35), 
recently built for Jessie". I guess this then means "is 
available", as opposed to "gets shipped as enterprise version", 
right? At least, my searches did not turn up any deb packages for 
4.14.7, other than that rogue PPA I found.

Okay, there's the sources and the DSC files etc... I guess my 
search was too specific. And to be honest, really, I had no idea 
searching for 4.13. :)

I guess so. :-) Searching for success stories, most of the 
related postings mention KDE 4.14 and Akonadi 1.13 (which is also 
true for the OP's initial writings in [2]). So I think I would 
not have gone for Akonadi, which is what I can find on 
OBS (following your link), if you had not mentioned it.

Considering the numerous bits & bytes I've gathered about the 
issue, I think I need to meditate and see how to proceed from
