As I see it, it's because nobody knows about it, and as a result, Qt 
Quick results in your application not looking like a native one. (Which 
is my reason for sticking to Widgets and avoiding QML UIs.)

If it's not in Qt, people just don't know it's there. Windows or macOS 
developers who use Qt don't have any reason to know what "KDE" even is.

IMO, Qt should make Qt Quick look native without requiring 3rd-party 
libraries for it.

Now that I know this exists, this is no longer an issue for me, I guess. 
But if I didn't read this mailing list, I'd never have known this even 
exists. I now might actually use QML for UIs (depending on how well this 
thing works; haven't tried it yet.)
