The same way that we may have a "Mobile minus native" compliance profile, we 
might end up with a "Mobile plus Qt".

But I agree with Jaroslaw here: it's too early to tell. Right now, it's more 
about integrating it with the infrastructure, making sure it builds, works 
properly if installed by an OEM.

In addition, the on-going discussion of 3rdparty library installation feature 
can potentially have a lot of impact on this. If we come up with a way for 3rd 
party libraries to be installed, this could be a way for distributing Qt to 
devices without affecting compliance.
