Abandoning a existing and functional GTK-based platform for QT is what Nokia tried to do with their Linux distribution and it turned out to be a disaster.
Seems to me that had more to do with other things going on at Nokia than whether Qt was an effective toolkit or not. Not that I think GNOME making a leap to Qt would be helpful though - it would just take a very long time, push a bunch of developers away from the project and probably not actually achieve anything anyway. Those calling for it probably don't know what they are asking for.
