You seem to have researched the topic a little more so I'm not going to 
argue any more. But my point stays: worse comes to worst, it's entirely 
unjustified to keep a modern framework without a native look while 
suggesting an 20-year old replacement, just because it might perform 
suboptimally on the few cards with no hardware acceleration.

I did. The only animation is in the swipe view, where the very name of 
the component suggests an animation. This swipe view is not obligatory 
but simply a part of the project template. One is free to use another 
template or replace the swipe view with a regular tab view.

An excellent point. They did add a tree view at one point but I've just 
confirmed it was for QQC1 only. So in addition to a native look in QQC2 
we also need a tree view (with a native look :) ).
