Whereas from Graphics (Quick, Quick3D, Qt3D) perspective this part of the discussion is irrelevant as the needs there are different, and those needs are better served by the existing gui/math3d, or, when it comes to 3rd party packages, glm (but definitely not Eigen).

I am unaware of previous discussions on this, but can you explain the
"definitely not" for Eigen?
