I think it's a bit like Mark Greenwood said - that they're still experimental. Which does lead to
the question as to why they are enabled by default.
I did find the following [http://techbase.kde.org/Projects/PIM/Akonadi#When_should_I_use_Akonadi.3F]:
When should I use Akonadi?
More precisely, when should you use for your application specific data instead of eg. just using
a local file directly.
Akonadi is especially useful when you need one the following:
* Different backends for your data, like eg. a local file and a remote server. Akonadi
provides a unified interface for application developers to access your data independent of the
* Caching and change replay of remote data. Akonadi has support for that built in, giving
you free offline support for any remote backend.
* Desktop-wide sharing of your data. As soon as more than one application (say your main
applications and a plasmoid) accesses the same data you need to deal with locking, conflict
detection, change notifications, etc. - or let Akonadi do that for you.
However, if you are just looking for a simple way to store your application data without needing
one of the above, using Akonadi usually means more implementation work for relatively little gain.
So perhaps that explains a little bit about Akonadi......
