Why does kde-filesystem own /etc/kde4?

I have noticed that kde-filesystem owns the following (empty) directories:
My question is: Why???

KDE 4 looks in /etc/kde just like KDE 3 does, /etc/kde4 is ignored entirely, 
as `kde4-config --path config` will confirm to you. The 3 empty 
subdirectories seem completely unused as well.

If anything is trying to install to those directories, it needs to be fixed 
to install to /etc/kde instead!

I propose we remove /etc/kde4 from kde-filesystem effective immediately.
