Because a few things will still stop to work (e.g. qtc android plugin) :) .
Also AFAIK everywhere else libQt5XXXX.so.5 is a symlink to libQt5XXXX.so.5.major which is a symlink to libQt5XXXX.so.5.major.minor . If you don't plan to ship libQt5XXXX.so.5.major.minor and we don't use symlinks, then personally I don't see any reason to add an extra .5 to the end of the file name as long as the file name already contains a 5 ...

Anyway if I'm the only one that is against this patch I'll change my score to 0 (or +x). But before that I'd like to see at least qtc android plugin working properly with this patch.
