There's a difference between application, e.g. ~/.confing/vlc/,
upstream/toolkit, e.g. ~/.config/kde5/
Should there be? Does it matter?
Similarly, I don't see any ~/.config/gtk/ for all gtk apps.
Gtk has been around to get set in its ways since the beginning of time, long
before the latest XDG spec you profess to be so great. That it allows, if
indeed it actually does allow, what IF5 has done, means XDG is broken.
I can see the appeal of wanting something like that, but I really
it's advantages outweighing the disadvantages of doing so.
Could be it's past time to get your glasses checked. One disadvantage is
glaring. Since KF5, ~/.config is a mess, definitely worse than keeping config
files in ~/.kde.
What advantage(s) is/are there?

words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
