Debian just searches for pretexts why not to include Trinity.
In OpenSUSE 11.0 KDE3 was included along with KDE4, with no problems. 
On modern OpenSUSE releases KDE3 also can be installed along KDE4.

As I already said, one can pick any other name as well, 
for example, kconsole, kconqueror in the case of KDE Classic
(looks better than tonsole, tonqueror).
