[stretch] kdialog and okular still based on kde4


I'm on stretch, and use Plasma 5 as desktop environment. While I've managed to 
set the right size for most desktop and application icons on my HiDPI 
display,there are some few icons that appear still too small.

One example is Okular and the icons of the menu entries, as you can see in 
screenshot [1]. Also the Save and Cancel icons in the Okular open document 
popup are small [2],  as well as the Save and Cancel icons in the Save File 
KDialog I get when saving something from Chrome or Gimp, for instance [3]. By 
contrast, when saving a file from KWrite those two icons have a regular size 

KDialog in itself has this problem. When I run it from the command line like 
in the following example, I get the usual minuscule save and cancel icons I 

solitone@alan:~$ kdialog --getsavefilename /tmp

The reason for this seems to depend on the older Qt version that kdialog and 
okular rely on:

solitone@alan:~$ kdialog --version
Qt: 4.8.7
KDE Development Platform: 4.14.26
KDialog: 1.0
solitone@alan:~$ okular --version
Qt: 4.8.7
KDE Development Platform: 4.14.26
Okular: 0.26.1

While kate and kmail, for example, that don't have the issue, are based on Qt 

Here are the packages involved:

solitone@alan:~$ apt-cache policy okular
  Installed: 4:16.08.2-1+b1
  Candidate: 4:16.08.2-1+b1

solitone@alan:~$ apt-cache policy kde-baseapps-bin 
  Installed: 4:16.08.3-1
  Candidate: 4:16.08.3-1

HiDPI is not well supported in Qt version 4.8.x, so this explains the issue in 
kdialog and okular.

So my question is: is there any chance that relase 16.12 of okular and kdialog 
(based on kde-frameworks5)  are included in stretch? Currently we've got 16.08 
(kde4 based), both in stretch an in sid.
