I'll let people more knowledgeable about wizards answer the main question, but to provide some context:
Keep in mind that Qt Creator started with only qmake support, and things were generalized one by one "on demand". What you are seeing here is something that's probably still in the original state.
Note also that "New Subproject..." is quite weird these days because it only exists for qmake, yet most of the wizards that pop up let you choose the build system for the sub-project, which makes no sense. (Ok, in theory you could mix build systems, but let's not get too silly.)
