The updated FAQ in the help handbook index references the migratekde3 script (question 4.15).

Unlike the r14-xdg-update script, which is necessary, we don't want to automate using the migratekde3 script anywhere. There is no way to predict whether a person is migrating from an old KDE3 profile. I have tested the migratekde3 script fairly well, but like any software, only through my perspective. I don't use other distros and I don't know what quirks or corner cases might exist with other distros. The latest version now recognizes ~/.kdemod3 as a KDE3 profile, thanks to your help. As I mentioned, We should consider treating Trinity <= 3.5.12 as a KDE3 profile because we did not start serious or massive renaming until 3.5.13. But I don't have a 3.5.12 or 3.5.11 setup to test migratekde3. Thus far, you're the only person who can help with that. :)
