I understand that the "hardened runtime" enabling happens at codesign time,
so this should arguably be a feature of macdeployqt. It's not there yet though,
at least according to https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-71291 .  If you're
right that this will become mandatory for macOS 10.15, it arguably get a higher 
priority; feel free to comment, including a link to the source of this statement.

For the time being, it seems you've to execute the codesign call yourself.
