LXQt is just a meta package, not a upstream package, so its version does
not related to upstream. Most of the lxqt-* packages now are upstream
version 0.11.1 [0].

But I think unversion is also okay to avoid confusion.

I am not familiar with KDE, but someone else mentioned this problem in
debian-release list [1], so I guess "KDE Plasma 5.8" is preferable.
