Following this question from Alex, and actually asking more Rafael. What 
do you mean exactly with "mark the BlackBerry 10 platform unsupported"? 
Which problem do you like to solve?

On top of this, the current implementation of QPA for BB10 is very much 
interlinked with the QNX one, it is basically almost the same.

While clarifying which problem will "mark the BlackBerry 10 platform 
unsupported" actually solve, I just want to warn that making actual 
changes in code in that respect will result in quite some work. I'm not 
sure if somebody in the project has that much time for this.

Indeed. It is just as easy as on other platforms which have used a core 
OS and have added middleware and apps on top. Do you know the way how to 
distinguish Linux from Andriod which runs on top of it?

Generally, there are defines set by configure which let you check you 
you run on pure QNX or on BB10.
