It really isn't as bad anymore as the texts would like to make you belief.
As long as the user chooses a device in the main or community

Yes! Plasma Mobile is currently preinstalled on the PinePhone using Manjaro ARM. There are also various other distributions for the PinePhone with Plasma Mobile available.
There is also postmarketOS, a touch-optimized Alpine Linux with support for many more devices, and while it’s in very early stages of development, it offers Plasma Mobile as an available interface for the devices it supports. You can see the list of supported devices here, but given the state of pmOS, your mileage may vary.

The interface is using KWin over Wayland and is now mostly stable, albeit a little rough around the edges in some areas. A subset of the normal KDE Plasma features are available, including widgets and activities, both of which are integrated into the Plasma Mobile UI. This makes it possible to use and develop for Plasma Mobile on your desktop/laptop.
