I support this. Having large Qt3D examples in a submodule seems like a 
good solution.

However, I would still like smaller examples that are easy to run and 
test to be available in the default git repository (and binary 
installations). Such as simple lighting, camera handling, animation, 
etc. This will make it easier for newcomers to test Qt3D without having 
to download the huge asset repository.
