Stefan, kde4* packages in feisty would help KDE application developers to work 
on snapshot version of the packages. These packages are not meant for end 
users, but to make Kubuntu a better platform for KDE developers that want to 
move their apps to KDE4. So, I do not see much point in removing this 
packages before the release of fesity.

Jonathan could probably host these packages in repositories, but 
this would limit the number of architectures as he can provide i386 only. 
This is why he would like to have them in universe and use ubuntu buildd 
infrastructure (and mirrors...).
