I agree on the JS Backend case.

For 3D and Location, I have a feeling it's a little premature, but I can't 
blame you for it. Especially in Location's case, with lots of plugins to be 
kept in working order, it might be tricky in the current situation.

Qt3D might be quite mature, actually, since it's been around for longer and 
has no platform-specific dependencies other than OpenGL.
