Somebody has to translate and create bindings for the mammoth KDESDK for KDE 4 first. ;-)
Plasma is a new framework, thus its in rapid evolution, its too early for production use.

KDE 4 is still at infant stage. It has an extremely ambitious goal to
run its frameworks, desktop and window manager in a lot of platforms,
even Windows (http://windows.kde.org), MacOS and mobile OSes.
Thus it went through major refactoring and reorganizing its frameworks.

Check out overview of KDE 4, its frameworks and roadmap in this interesting video here:

Personally, I would wait for at least version 4.3 for daily production use.
