Without such a clause, you could easily incorporate a wholly owned 
subsidiary, make it do all the development as "contractors" using Open 
Source Qt, get the finished product back, slap it under Commercial Qt 
and enjoy the benefits of the commercial terms without having paid for 
it during the development. That's what the clause is protecting against.
