Well, when you dropped RHEL 6 you sabotaged commercial support for it.

Try fully ripping out QML. Not just conditionally compiled out. Not just 
"don't use it." Fully rip it out of the OpenSource product and all 
support for it such that QtC has to add it back in for every release.

No, it's not.

That statement makes it painfully obvious you never learned Software 

No. Replacing one monitor with one of equal or higher capability does 
not meet definition of RISK. "Screens look like crap" does not meet the 
definition of RISK.

"Unable to read data placing patient at risk" does meet the definition 
of RISK.

Replacing with a lesser capability monitor does meet the definition of 
RISK because a 640x480 screen may not fit everything that was on the 
larger monitor.
