[Development] Why is QVariant::data() \internal?

I am currently interfacing two libraries that only have QVariant in common, 
most of the (value) types getting exchanged are either Qt containers or 

I was relatively quick to realize that I needed the QMetaType and 
QMetaObject of these objects, but it took me pretty long to find out that I 
can use QVariant::data() to get at the void* that I need to access 
properties and Q_INVOKABLEs.

Is there a particular reason that QVariant::data() is classified as 
\internal or would a documentation patch be accepted?
