 I guess the whole point of having Ubuntu 14.04 LTS in CI is to support that 
platform as long as it is important. As you said it will be important until 
16.04 release. I think we could potentially remove 14.04 from CI on dev branch 
after Qt 5.7 release. Can't you "ifdef" you code, so it "works" with the older 
Wayland too?
