IMHO, yes please. Several distros will install suffixed binaries to /usr/bin 

Third-party build systems need to call moc and uic directly, and it makes 
life much easier for them if they do not have to first query qmake-qt6, 
cmake, pkg-config or whatever to know where to find the correct version of 
those binaries, but can just directly invoke moc-qt6 and get what they need.
