That will have to be decided by qt5 maintainer (Larry)
My suggestion (suppose we bump to 5.9) is to place them on -review
branch first and see if other scripts are working fine with it. If it
turns out to be OK, we can then merge it into master and 14.2.

based on rough count, we have more than 60 other scripts depending on
qt5 for hard dep and probably more with optional dep. That will take
some time to test.
