Well, when I switched Phonon's backend from GStreamer to VLC, I was able to 
purge almost everything GStreamer-related, except for two libgstreamer files 
which are, you're right, dependencies of qtwebkit.

Kamoso wants to bring in the full set of "base" and "good" GStreamer plugins, 
along with other GNOME-ish stuff like bits of glib-networking, gsettings, 
gnome-keyring libs.

Actually, KTP wants do the same thing. So it would seem like these aren't 
"pure" KDE packages :)
