KO 2.1 - we are smarter yet again!

Just a few minutes ago I saw a complaint about our KOffice 2.1 packages having 
an uglish flaw [1]. So I was searching the launchpad for all information 
regarding recent history of the KO package, and to my surprise what I expected 
to be koffice-kde4 was indeed koffice (source pkg that is)!

So here I am sitting.
Are we smarter than upstream yet again?

I am quoting the KOffice 2.1 release announcement here
"In version 2.1, most applications and components have improved significantly 
but should still only be used by early adopters and probably not as the 
primary worktool." [2]

Hence I would like to know why in lucid koffice [3] is 2.1, yet contains *-kde4 
Where did koffice (kde3) go? Vanish? It certainly did not get renamed to koffice-
kde3 [4]

Some enlightenment would be nice, because the last thing I want is upstream 
coming after us (yet again) because we screwed up our packaging.
