You can add NO_PLUGIN to your qt_add_qml_module, but be warned: The 
linker will be clever and omit your type registrations. You have to 
prevent that in some other way then. The usual way to prevent it is 
Q_IMPORT_PLUGIN on the generated plugin.

And you should not add your QML files with qt_add_resources. The most 
important thing qt_add_qml_module does is adding your QML files.
