IMHO, as long as Qt LTS keeps abusing that loophole in the KDE Free Qt 
Foundation contract, this is not acceptable.

Free Software / Open Source users and distributors (e.g., GNU/Linux 
distributions) of Qt are essentially forced to upgrade to the non-LTS 
versions, so any module / add-on / external library that only works with LTS 
releases is useless for us.
