If we're talking device security and restrictions policy... then please 
make this something that can fail "softly" at runtime.

I know most mobile platforms seem intent on following the "app asks for 
permissions, user grants all or none" model but I'd like to think we'll 
be ready for the "app asks for permissions, user grants some of them" 
model if/when it arrives.

Note though that this may be possible already, using 
Component.createObject() or Qt.createQmlObject(). As long as one of 
those can be used to "recover" from an import that fails due to this API 
(and as long as this method is documented) I'll be happy :)
