This is something I'm interested in as well, and the answer to all
these questions seems to be yes.

Dmitry Shachnev made a little demo using Python3 and PyQt5 with Ubuntu
SDK components that I've successfully run on the phone:

You need to be using the image with a writable file system and install
the python3-pyqt5.qtquick package.

The real unanswered question is whether PyQt5 will be available on the image.
