Using KDE's QT release or making it available in backports

 Given that KDE have effectively taken over regular maintenance of the QT 5.x version (for non-commercial users), would it make sense to switch to KDE's release instead of QT's?

KDE rebased their repo to QT 5.15.3 a few weeks ago in this commit: so they bring in all the latest changes from QT while adding other fixes of their own including for Wayland support. I realise that this may require changes upstream in Debian (which are discussed here:, so could Kubuntu backports be a good place to make KDE's version of QT available?
