I have asked several times for a bug report to be made on this one... 
Here is a summary of the issue from Thomas:

A summary of the issue:
- extra/qt provides/conflicts/replaces phonon
- kdelibs depends on phonon
- testing/qt does not provide phonon
- testing/phonon exists

On update, pacman complains: kdelibs depends on phonon.
