There will be no more feature releases in Qt 4.x, so I wouldn't add new 
features to it.

Whether to add new features to QtQuick1 or not... I don't know. Some may argue 
that it should not get features that weren't in Qt 4 (like Qt3Support didn't 
w.r.t Qt 3), while some others may say it's a regular Qt 5 module and that, if 
your new features don't risk adding to the porting effort from Qt 4, it should 
be ok to add them.
