imports is in a way the good name, as that relates to the QML import statement. But I see your point that it's been used by QML 1. 

I am against making QML2 a subdirectory of imports (ie. option a1). So either a separate directory, or we keep the QML 1 modules in a subdirectory. Both are ok for me.
