I just wrote a wonderful utility using Qt 5.6.2 and Widgets for the desktop, 
and there's no hint of QML in it.  It functions beautifully, is easily 
maintainable, and even has full animations.

I don't think the mantra is QML.  The mantra is: Look at your need, your goal, 
and choose the Qt technology that best fits it. If that's QML, fine. If that's 
Widgets, fine.  Unless Qt reps step up here and support your statement (which 
will have ramifications for me and, I'm sure, many others), summarily stating 
to somebody that they should use QML as the primary tech for a new desktop app 
is, I think, dogmatic, at best, and continues to fuel the anxiety that Qt is 
pouring all the love into a QML/mobile focus.

Just my $0.02.
