The phonon upstream repository is itself modularized into several sub-
repositories (core + one per backend)

Also, as I pointed out, the upstream phonon requires cmake for building.
It could theoretically be possible to create the qmake .pro files, but then 
someone will need to maintain them.
(I personaly think it is fine to have add-ons requiring cmake. But I don't 
know about qt5.git)
