If all the relevant authors sign off on the statement, there would be no
problem. But if some authors don't sign off then that would be a problem.
This is especially true if the primary authors of some piece of software
don't sign off on this additional clarification. And this is especially
important for the case where the software was originally written for
use without Qt.
[For example, kvt: kvt's original license is good enough to put it in
non-free without any additional clarification. But to go in main or
contrib additional clarification would be needed.]
