Normally, the packages in the official updates will have newer EVRs 
(Epoch-Version-Releases, i.e. what defines RPM's version ordering) than what's 
currently in kde-redhat testing. Only some packages which stayed in kde-redhat 
unstable will not be included in the official updates: cmake 2.6, kdepim 4.1, 
and the alpha versions Amarok 2 and KOffice 2. I expect these to stay in 
kde-redhat unstable. So you should not run into broken dependencies.
