Most KDE apps use MVC, so it is possible to create new views for most of them without major refactor. The future of Linux is on mobile (Android alone apparently...) so laying some work to be able to survive at some point in the future seem to be a good idea. Its like knowing an asteroid is coming to earth and just waiting until you can see it without a telescope to act. I don't think Plasma will gain that much traction on mobile until there is an Android UI based on it, but still good to know that they think about it right now.
