Please no…

No, it doesn't make sense. Never did, never will. As for the "KDE SC" thing, 
they now discourage its use without offering any alternative at all, which 
just means people reverted to calling it just "KDE". (I know I did.) There's 
no way people are going to write "the KDE Plasma Workspaces, the KDE 
Development Platform / Libraries / Frameworks / (whatever the term of the 
day is) and the KDE Applications (those that happen to release together with 
the other stuff)" every single time.
