Sorry if I'm beside the point, just want to be sure, did you try to
get lxqt by just adding it to your system profile?
I tried lxqt once and I don't remember experiencing the problems
described in your link.

Also, from what I've seen in gnu/services/desktop.scm, desktop services are
often just polkit or dbus extensions, if some lxqt packages need a
special environment variable, another solution is to modify the package
definition with a `wrap-program` phase or something. This way, the
problem should be solved even if the user doesn't use the service.
