I agree that all these packages are useful for kmail and korganizer. However,
especially when using multiple machines, a browser web can be said to be
essential but a complete mail suite is not. I have different computers but
only one is used for e-mail, from my point of view is not useful to have kmail
and friends installed by default on all my computers by default because they
serve different purposes.
And, again, I think that kmail and its complementary applications installed by
default are too much for the general public. We power users have our needs but
the majority out there has more simple needs. For a lot of people the web
interface of their only e-mail account is more than enough, meaning that what
they need is just a web browser.
