Yeah, it looks like b) is prefered. So let's plan with this option.

In case nobody is interested in (or have time for) doing a settings migrating 
tool for the stuff that is not migrated by the apps [1], we always can setup a 
page (and also maybe a README in the packages?) with some hints for migrating 
the stuff and have some pointer when people yells: WHERE IS MY EMAIL?

We have several cases:
- User of KDE 3 going to KDE 4 when it enters in unstable. (base case)
- Current user of KDE 4.2 who have already migrated settings. (nothing to do
  in our side, they have already migrated themselves)
- And the hard one: user of KDE 3 using some KDE 4 stuff. They have .kde and
  .kde4 with data in both.

[1] For what I have understood in this thread, everything should be migrated,
and when it is not possible, being ignored. And when it is not correclty 
migrated it is a bug to report to upstream.
