I am pretty sure about that. KWin, which is responsible for virtual workspaces
and window-rules, might change how it is interacting with the lower parts of
the stack, e.g. adding support for wayland, but I don't think there are any
plans to remove things like virtual desktops as long as the base technologies
allow such things to be implemented (which as far as I know they do).
Virtual desktops, and to a lesser extent window specific rules, are widely used
in the KDE contributor community. I can't think of any KDE person I've met who
was not using multiple virtual desktops to organize application windows.
As far as I understand, the people working on KDE workspace products consider
activities to be a complimentary technology to virtual desktops, i.e.
something that can be used in concert with desktop switching.
