It mostly looks fine to me.  The JS Object to / from QVariantMap conversion isn't new to QtQuick 2.0, and QList<int> was supported in QtQuick 1.0 (but in a much slower form).  But in general the summary is correct, I believe.  However, as mentioned in my initial response to Rene, we are overhauling the documentation at the moment, so hopefully it manages to capture all of the required information in a simple and accessible manner.  Wiki pages have a tendency to grow stale, unfortunately.
