You realize that the ownCloud developers don't really consider the address
book and calendar resources production ready & safe, right? So while I can
understand the frustration I'd suggest to moderate the tone of the message
until you know what actually happened.
That issue could have been caused by ownCloud, by Akonadi, or by an unforeseen
interaction between the two which neither the ownCloud nor the Akonadi
developers foresaw and just never encountered before.
In any case, isn't the address book storage in ownCloud also based on a VCS?
In that case you should not have lost anything.

Do you have a log of the communication on the wire?
Otherwise it is also quite possible that what Akonadi received was a well-
formed WebDAV stream that was simply empty. That might be exactly what it
would receive if the user deleted the contacts on the server.
In other words: How do you expect Akonadi to behave if the server tells it
that the user deleted all contacts?

That seems an oddly backward way of organizing things in the days of IMAP,
which also takes care of the danger of losing mail - in our corporate setup we
even retain all deleted messages for quite some time before they actually get
But I agree it should work, although when I hear that you're still having
Nepomuk issues, I wonder which version you're on, because from the 4.8.1
release I have seen dramatic improvements here.
Anyhow: Making sure that KDE PIM works well is as much your responsibility as
it is that of anyone else on this list. You can contribute in a myriad of
ways, as do most of the people on this list.
So I'll take your last comments as self-flagellation.
