Should trackerd run in KDE or not? (was [Bug 147017] trackerd vs. strigidaemon)

Bug 147017 [1] reports that when logging in KDE with Gnome installed,
there will be both trackerd and strigi running, which sounds useless
since both are indexers.

So my question is, should we disable trackerd from starting in KDE? As
Michael Biebl (who is the Debian maintainer for tracker) said, it just
means removing /usr/share/autostart/trackerd.desktop from tracker package.
