What would you propose as an alternative to OpenGL? A software backend
for QML 2, which lets you use GLSL for custom effects (which makes a lot
of sense)?

Why not just use Gallium llvmpipe or another software OpenGL
implementation then. Llvmpipe even achieves better performance than the
GPU on some low end systems (although with higher CPU usage and thus
power consumption, but you probably already accepted those consequences
when you chose a system without OpenGL acceleration).
