I'm not a big fan of adding these desktop integration files downstream. Also, this would create duplicate entries for users who have both versions installed, I already get enough complaints with the qt5-tools menu entries alone.

Duplicated entries can be avoided by removing desktop files from the qt5-tools package since it's the legacy version.
