Questions Regarding KDE's conformity of the StatusNotifierItem Protocol


Recently I have been implementing The StatusNotifierItem[1] protocol for the
sway window manager. I have been using KDE programs to test my implementation
because KDE has stated that it uses the protocol. However, it seems that instead
of using the 'org.freedesktop.*" namespace that is defined by the protocol, KDE
uses "org.kde.*" for every aspect of the protocol. Why do KDE programs use this
instead of the official specification?

Thank you,
