I fully agree. The main use case is to have a show case "Hey, look,
there's a non-trivial application running on both Qt 4 and Qt 5,
sources are right in front of you!" - and whether that's worth 17MB
download for everybody I don't know.
For actual development of Qt Creator plugins, open or not, using
sources from git is much more convenient. About the only case
I could think of that would be different is some environment without
direct internet access.
