I very would like to use ApplicationWindow from QtQuick.Controls module so
I would rather not to do that.

Because of above, either ApplicationWindow will be moved to C++ or another
solution will be found or idea of reusing ApplicationWindow dropped.
Didn't you consider such case that certain Item could be declared as quasi
root of the tree?
Jens correct me if I am wrong but it can be necessary when support of
ApplicationWindow styling will be added.
