Yes, and we're working on fixing that part. Qt Quick 1 is already now discouraged for new code. My thinking was to deprecate it around 5.2 time frame, and take things from there.

I would already like us to be able to remove it from the default set of installed packages with 5.1. The main thing to fix for that is probably the dependencies creator has on it.
