That's not entirely true. The model usually provides presentation data too.
Like colors, fonts, icons, alignment, etc (see qt-copy/doc/html/qt.html#ItemDataRole-enum)
So defining additional roles which control parts of the "rendering" is certainly an option
(but of course it shouldn't be over-used since it forces people to write custom models).
