The problem is that also non-KDE programs may use shortcuts that are specific to those programs. Sometimes this will lead to conflicts with the KDE ones.
The key combination Ctrl+C is supposed to mean "copy marked text" in KDE (and in many other environments) but you can't use it for that in a terminal even if that terminal is part of KDE, as the shell will interpret it differently. So in Konsole you have to use Ctrl+Shift+C instead.
And when I a few years ago I used Cairo Dock with KDE I had to redefine quite a number of standard KDE shortcuts as Cairo Dock used the same key combinations for quite different purposes.
