Regarding standards

Regarding the standardisation .. KMail and Konq both uses KParts (integration into the KDE desktop) and have a few years on their back - which Thunderbird and Firebird does not, they're still in beta ...

Regarding the productivity packages, the KOffice folks are changing direction a bit - their old standard XML document format is to be replaced by the OO.O sxw ....

But it is foolish using ressources on developing the same applications in two parallel desktop environments. When you look at the progress they've made - it makes you wonder, what miracales they could have achieved working on the same railroad. But lets see what kind of bridge SUSE/Novell is able to build (IMO the course of SUSE the last few years has been standadization ... that is the golden way).
