FWIW, part of the issue there might be that a lot of devs won't touch
mono/c# with a 3 meter pole, due to where it came from. KDE isn't gnome,
and it's rather ironic that the one of the same people that founded gnome
due to license issues kde had at that time, has been so much the leader
in pushing the mono technology that MS has yet to clearly and irrevocably
free from patent claims and the like and apparently has no intention of
doing so, into gnome.
But regardless of the political issues, there's little or nothing in
mainline kde sc that requires those bindings and unless you REALLY want
one of the fringe apps that might happen to require them, I'd say just
let them be. For most, at least most of those who'd choose to build it
themselves, it's simply a component or two that nothing uses, so not
installing it simply means not having to worry about updating it with
every kde update they do, and that many less unused or extremely lightly
used installed components to worry about the potential of someone finding
a security hole to exploit.
