The question is where to integrate this? I don't really see it.

I'm in favour to do this right now:
Use ~/.kde as default KDEHOME and patch startkde (or whatever kind of
autostart) to show a message that it would be good to have a backup of
~/.kde if people are having important stuff in there. If they want, they
can terminate the startup, do the backup, and restart KDE.
Maybe a slightly similar message, if ~/.kde4 exists.

Non-KDE users are alone in the wild now, but yeah, what should we do.
At least right now I do not see a better solution which notifies
everybody.

Greetings,
Armin
