Sounds reasonable to me (both, 3. and 2.).

That depends. My understanding of the discussion so far (s.a.
tdf#124044) was that kde5 wouldn't be the default (on Plasma/LXQt) if
not considered "ready" in time for 6.2.5. This could e.g. easily be
achieved by reverting commit f2bf002e90bf5cc74cf190d66507e59b78ba73e9
("Add autodetection for KDE5 VCL Plugin").
In this case, people manually setting "SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN" would still be
able to choose qt5 or kde5, but IMHO people doing so should know what
they're doing... (matching case 3 from above).
I don't have strong opinion on that, though.
