Probably that was not the right analogy, but... I still cannot think of
mysql-server as a "session runtime service".
But also if akonadi was part of a KDE infrastructure, it should be clear
that people can have addressbook (like I do) in an LDAP server. That's
one of the supported sources for kaddressbook, so forcing me to use
akonadi (and to install mysql for this) just to look in an LDAP
directory cannot be a correct choice.
