I"m not sure why the recommendation to move to Sid repos first but my laptop is proof you can get updated KDE packages without the added risk of things breaking more often on a system running Sid. I had written a blog post a while back about how I got KDE 4.7.4 on LMDE UP3 but I didn't update it when I installed it on this (replacement) laptop. Should I go back and do that? I think I can remember all the steps I took to get where I am now.
Because there is nothing in the qt-kde repo.qt-kde mirrors have been purged, since 4.8.4 packages are available in Debian sid.

Trust me Debian Testing breaks way way more than Sid. And the OP doesn't just want KDE, he wants things like newer LibreOffice, newer GIMP (which is probably in Testing as well, etc. In other words he wants newer packages in general.
