I told you my opinion : what you called "extra functionality" does not exist for desktop Qt and does not make desktop Qt better.
Function helpful for WinRT Qt is building in desktop Qt. As the result there is a need in WinRT part of SDK. As result compatibility with Win7SDK was lost (it has no WinRT part).
Finally : compatibility with Win7SDK was lost for nothing. I just informed you about that mistake in your understanding. That is ALL I can do for that problem.
