absolutely, yes.
I like kword and kspread well, ligthtweight, fast, well integrated,
does (nearly) every thing I need, so far.
some quirks though (inconsistent font sizes, e.g.).
(I also tried koffice2.x several times, before it became calligra, and it was 
a complete mess, unusable, data loss etc.).
OO, however, is a monster and just plain overkill, I just use it rarely when I 
have to look at some M$-office documents sent from someone...

hm, there ARE separate packages, e.g. kspread:

Beschreibung: a spreadsheet for the KDE Office Suite [Trinity]
 KSpread is a powerful spreadsheet application.  It is scriptable and provides 
both table-oriented sheets and support for complex mathematical formulae
 and statistics.

 This package is part of the KDE Office Suite.

what's missing from koffice in trinity, are all localisation packages, though.
