That's no valid reason. Distributions shipped kdepim 4.4 together with 
Qt 4.7. Still we never made Qt 4.7 a hard requirement for kdepim 4.4.

If you want developers to switch to Qt 4.8 to get the KDE code better 
tested with this version of Qt then simply ask developers to do so. I 
see no good reason to force developers to do so.
