It may be that modules can be maintained separately, but how often is that done? It seems like even Qt 3D is maintained as a proper Qt module, tied to Qt releases. If they want to have inter-release bumps 5.10.x would seem to be the way to go?

I would oppose this idea. There is supposed to be backward and forward
compatibility in a patch release. Bumping the imports in a patch release
breaks this (you can have code using Qt 5.10.1, importing Qt Quick 5.10,
and which doesn't work with Qt 5.10.0).

My 2 cents,
