I think you need to understand the following:
Any KDE application requires the KDE libraries to start up.
So if you use LaunchKDE or not, starting konsole will mean they have to
What you call a "work-around" is actually the solution.
You *can't* use konsole without starting the KDE libraries.
So trying to speed this up is pointless - its not xfce that's slow, its
konsole, because it uses all the KDE libraries.
