This will be the standard API that KDE apps will interface. Don't forget that KDE is used on a number of different environments (including natively on Windows for the next version, KDE4).
With the abstraction layer, KDE app developers will only have to code to one API and developers who port to different environments will only have to create a plugin for phonon for that environement for all the KDE apps to work. This is the only sensible way to go.
