I know of some projects that are still out there using QtQuick1
(unfortunately). I think that moving to remove it now might be a little
too quick, although I do think it's inevitable, and not a bad thing.

Are there any specific concerns you have about maintenance? Is there
anything that can be done to lessen that burden?

This is true, but porting does require nonzero effort (especially in
testing, as one can't be certain that everything works due to some
subtle behaviour changes like MouseArea with opacity 0 still
intercepting presses in QQ2). I think that giving some amount of time
(5.7, 5.8?) after deprecation before removal might make sense.
