[Development] Proposing CMake as build tool for Qt 6

Your statement that CMake has no support for iOS is incorrect. From https://cmake.org/cmake/help/v3.14/release/3.14.html#platforms :
* CMake now supports Cross Compiling for iOS, tvOS, or watchOS using simple toolchain files.
It is also my understanding that projects using CMake can use Apple's automated code signing. This might be done at application time using the xcode generator.

I won't hold my breath for community support for iOS. iOS is out for so many
years, yet CMake has no support for t.
iOs is not a show stopper if and only you're prepared to drop this plaform
from Qt 6 in case cmake support will be poor or non existing.
