Fair enough.. 

But I will say.. all too often.. theory becomes practice....

Please note that nobody said «we are removing Qt containers in Qt6». At least, I don’t have that information.

The discussion is mostly about a *theoretical* case when the implementation of a *theoretical* method in a *theoretical* class may *theoretically* change and how far we should go to support that *theoretical* change. Or should not =)

It’s been said that Qt6 will be mostly source-compatible with Qt5.

PS: there’s been a discussion about killing QList but it is not clear how to do so without breaking half of the world (i.e. no final decision so far) and this discussion started long time ago, so you've had (and still have plenty of) time to revisit usages of QList in your codebase and replace it with more appropriate container.
