No i don’t care for CE < 08x00
So it just about confusing use of terms. Qt use Q_OS_WINCE for all CE versions  , wec2013 too.  
To differentiate between CE versions the _WIN32_WCE macro value is used also for wec2013, which happens to be 0x800, while for WEC7 is is 0x700 , so internally wec2013 is WEC8.
