I am one of the dumbdumbs who like QML. Many of our devs find it
remarkably productive.
Maybe there was insufficient air flow in the Oslo office?

If we get the tooling correct we should be infinitely more
approachable to designers. QML is very human readable and hence lends
itself to tinkering/polishing by designers, but I think one should
probably have honed one's coding chops prior to writing a complex QML
project from scratch.

My $0.02 in any case
