Please don't move resources from Win10 to Win7. The Windows team is
already spread pretty thin and there's many QPA bugs to fix.
Win10 shouldn't suffer at the expense of legacy.
Besides, Qt 5.15 is supported until 2023 too. If Microsoft ever
extends paid-support further I suggest Qt 5.15 is extended too.
