I am strongly opposed to this.

Kubuntu and Ubuntu use most of the same packages, and there is such an
overlap between lots of them that many guides and docs on the wiki are
common to both. Yes, some kubuntu specific docs are needed, but nothing
stops people from writing them.

Having one wiki for both does not in any way impede the development of
kubuntu docs, IMHO.
