Yes, but the problems with this construct are the same as with generic 
context properties: Your QML component requires some context that it 
doesn't declare. Therefore your code is not reusable and brittle wrt 
addition of properties in other places.

Mind that all those dynamic lookups will still live on in QML 2, and we 
will maintain QML 2 throughout Qt6. They just won't be valid in QML 3.
