For the same reason, why a module like QuickControls 2 is using private 
headers of Quick Core. 

The qskinny project is about creating a C++ framework ( QML is only 
optional ) with an API in the spirit of Qt/Widgets, but using the modern 
graphic stack of Qt/Quick.

It needs way less memory and we don't have any startup performance issues 
- categories, where we failed with our previous version of the product 
using Qt/Quick in the standard way.

The code you can see on github is coming from a project in the automotive 
industry, that is currently under development.

Unfortunately I can only release a subset of our code under an Open 
Source License and I didn't have the time yet to pimp up the provided 
examples and skins to be more impressive.

Maybe once our product has been introduced to the public I can give a 
better demonstration of what we achieved with this alternative approach.
