You don't have to convince us. The fact is that a person only slightly
interested in Qt will download it from the Qt website, because that's
where the search engines will point to (until someone provides an
account-free download elsewhere, at least), and the need to register is
enough to put some people off.

You might find it unreasonable, but it happens.
