Whoever believes being able to make a realistic assessment. 

If there is no such person/group in this list, which can do an estimate how much of Qt is
affordable, an important aspect of the Qt 6 discussion can not actually be discussed. How
can Marc think about removing (or significantly changing) Qt due to ressource limits or
new strategic goals if the limits or goals are unknown?

Actions out of frustration are never a good idea. And pushing into a (technical) direction
that does not solve the underlying (strategical) problem is futile.
