KDE PIM update for Zesty available for testers

I've tried the upgrade but fail to understand the dependancy circle
I'm encountering.
Disclaimer:I'm not a packaging expert!

aptitude suggests to remove 7 packages, of which knotes is one. This
is because knotes has both version 16.04.3 and 16.12.3 of kdepim-doc
in the breaks and replaces dependancies. Like I said, I'm not an
expert, but it seems strange for knotes 16.12.3 to have a break
dependancy on kdepim-doc 16.12.3?

A little more research reveals that kdepim-doc 16.12.3 is a
transitional package and can be removed. So that would explain the
problems, but fact is, that is not the suggested solution?

In some sort of same way kdepim-runtime breaks kdepimkio-plugins
16.04.3 but here the solution isn't so obvious other than removing

Another circle:
libkf5messagecomposer5 depends on kf5-messagelib-data and resolving
this leads to a circle, unless I remove libkf5messagecomposer5
completely. The same holds for libkf5messagecore5, libkf5messagelist5,
libkfmessageviewer5 and libkf5mailcommon5. They are all 16.04.3
versions so I assume it's safe to remove them?

I've canceled the upgrade for now.

Best regards,

If 'but' was any useful, it would be a logic operator
