  In this case IMHO we should delay the feature freeze (and the release) with 5 weeks or to make it an optional technical preview with no API/ABI back compatibility promises.
  Qt Purchasing library is not crucial a crucial library that we can't leave without it. Personally, I find it a pretty nice to have new feature, and it will make a lot of people happy.

Right, which means we probably won't find a lot to change (or anything at all).

The Qt Project cannot do otherwise. There isn't enough time and the module is 
5 weeks late.

I'd rather not open a precedent, otherwise anyone might say "here's a brand 
new module which I've been supporting for a while, so you can't call it a TP 
and you can't change the API"

If you're asking the Qt Project "take it or leave it", the answer would have 
to be "leave it, please submit again in one week for 5.7."
