You can do that both with widgets and with QML, no one is saying you can't
return a Quick item from a plugin, which is after that exposed to the main
QML interface (by adding it to the scene as necessary). Should take
approximately the same effort as doing it with the widgets or thereabout.
It is also possible in a client-server architecture, however the "how" will
depend very much on the requirements you have. Servers come in different
flavours as well, it's not mandatory to stick to HTTP, but it may be
beneficial in some cases. Personally, I don't like the idea of streaming
the UI related stuff over the network (e.g. with WebGL), but again this'd
be a decision made based on the actual requirements of your project.
