QT being healthy without QT devs remains to be seen. But I with all the luck to them.
I still think that the toolkit is relatively irrelevant to other aspects of the platform and it always will be.

People have created forks of Gnome stuff since back Gnome 1.x days as a sort of protest. Almost all of them die fairly quickly after the first release, but I don't think it's a terrible thing that people are that passionate about Gnome software.
Maybe if you go off and start a QT version of Gnome then maybe then you can prove to people how awesome QT can be without KDE. Personally I think it would be easier just to stick with KDE and try to make that more Gnome-like if that is truly your goal.
