I wonder how hard is to implement pure c++ "declarative" library. Afaik, qtdeclarative originally used v8 JavaScript engine which got replaced with Qt-ish engine to avoid conversions to/from Qt types. Maybe, it's possible to go the opposite direction and remove Qt dependency in the first place?
Except for GUI and script module, I don't think there's a lot of Qt stuff.
