If you have already shipped text_input_unstable_v2 in QT without using a
private prefix, we must simply skip text_input_unstable_v2 in
wayland-protocols and move to v3 already, not ever relaesing the
unstable v2.

Next time that you cannot wait for a protocol being released as part of
wayland-protocols, please use a private prefix. If you just release
software with the unreleased protocol with the generic prefix used by
wayland-protocols, you completely side step the intention of
wayland-protocols, forcing us to skip versions or rename interfaces.
