I find it confusing that in one mail you argue that introducing Q_NULLPTR in 
passing (= the way we do formatting changes) introduces inconsistency, and in 
another mail you're looking for "selected places" where "Q_NULLPTR makes 

Which one should it be?

If there's one universal rule, it's that less rules are easier to follow. So:

"Q_NULLPTR everywhere" instead of "in headers or [list of selected places]".

KIS, dude :)
