The abstraction level of QML is not the level where the accessibility 
information can be added in a meaningful way. You don't want every rectangle
announcing itself as a rectangle, we played with the tought, did some 
experiments and concluded it's the wrong level of abstraction. Qt Quick 
Controls and other UI elements built with Qt Quick are accessible.
For custom controls, the author usually only has to add Accessible.name: "some 
name" and ideally also Acessible.role.
