Len questions: are we thinking of getting rid of Raw Therapee and Shotwell?
Len adds: KDE libs are no longer a concideration as we have already added them.

It seems that Simple Scan is not up to graphics or photography use as it does not seem to include (That I could find) a way for scanning colour material. For both Photography and Graphics we should have something less "simple"... something fully featured. I personally installed xsane, but there may be others that are better. Considering the similarities from scanners to Cameras there may even be other SW we now ship that works with scanners too.
