"Deal with" can be done on many levels. I'd say it would be acceptable 
if some more advanced features are not available for older Qt versions. 
Sure you can edit projects based on old Qt versions, but do you really 
think that it has to offer the same level of tooling that is made 
possible with newer versions? So for what its worth, I think I'm with 
Olivier here: it makes sense to put it in an LTS that is expected to see 
use for a long time yet.
