Calligra components (and their KDE dependencies) are far from "lightweight".  
Unless you use KDE as your main desktop environment, you'll have to install  
lots of KDE packages as Calligra's dependencies.

When people say software is lightweight they usually refer to load times/how  
snappy or responsive the application is/memory usage and not to the file size  
of the package itself, as even the smallest hard drive should suffice for  
just software package installations (as media files can always be transferred  
to external hard drives). The reasons not to install KDE apps in a GTK  
environment are usually not related to packages being lightweight but rather  
to installing lots of packages which fill up your menus and of course the  
fact that Qt apps won't look like GTK apps.
