My point is:

Qt minor releases are 6 months apart.

How realistic is it to conceive, plan, implement and test a 'new major 
release' of an entire module in that timespan?

Would it be better for users of Qt to stick to the Qt schedule instead? 

What is a 'new major release' in that scenario anyway? How does it differ from 
a 'new minor release of Qt' and 'a new minor release of module Y'? How useful 
is it (for someone trying to understand a release of anything) that those are 
all different things?
