This proposal looks good.  I would like to understand one portion that
isn't clear to me, though:

 "For any update, Qt and KDE versions must match. Major Qt versions will
  not be put in -proposed, -updates, or -backports."

What happens in the case of needing a newer Qt for a KDE update?
Has upstream promised not to do micro version updates of KDE that require
major version updates of Qt?
