There are already work in progress about it. Mark Doffman is working
in a qt-atspi2-bridge, a equivalent to gnome atk-atkspi2-bridge, but
using (AFAIK) those IA2 interfaces.

Jeremy Whiting (jpwhiting) talked about it in a blog post [1], and
pointed to the current qt-atspi2-bridge repository [2], right now
hosted by codethink.
