KMail2 backup: can ignore the akonadi stuff?

I want to switch from Kubuntu 11.10 to 12.04.
In earlier time backup of my mails was easy:
tar the .kde folder and you're done.
Now we have akonadi (and nepomuk) & a mysql server running
in my opinion:
1. overkill: a simple file based sqlite would have beet simpler
2. security issue due to indexing:
Immagine I have a *temporarily* mail with some
"private" stuff like credit card number / password.
If I delete (or wipe) my email: how can I get sure
that this data is *not* surviving as ghost in some index file.
The same issue nepomuk: I do not want a system using constantly
cpu/memory/disk indexing stuff which I want to search only
from time to time.
I would prefer to search explicitly when I need to, but nepomuk/akonady
(or only akonady do not remember) need to run or Kontakt & friends do
not work anymore.
Ok, after my remarky (yes I am whining a little bit) I have one question:
Is it enough to back up the .kde folder *ignoring* the akonadi
Or will I have some mails lost?
