  The main reason is that the dependencies for producing the various
output formats are nasty, and aren't even supported on all platforms.
Even worse, building docbook requires more than a trivial amount of
packages, which aren't even the same on all distributions. So building
doc by default would likely generate a huge pile of bug reports that
we'd not be able to do much about.

  KDE support is available most everywhere, and there's a lot of KDE
users out there, so it needs to be built by default.
