I assumed that since it uses a qvariant that this cannot be guaranteed, in which case the loop overwrites non-string values with an empty string.  If we can guarantee it will always be a string, then does it really need to be a qvariant?

This is wrong.
String, Bool, ByteArray, Char, Date, DateTime, Double, Int, LongLong, StringList, Time, UInt, or ULongLong can be converted to a string with reasonable content
So what this code eventually did was to override few (mostly custom) types with empty strings resp. a dash, ie. at best melt unknown information - what would likely have been a bug since toString() would still return an empty string when this is used. With the patch from "-" -> "" the loop is pointless unless you actively want to destroy information where you explicitly do not know what it is.

QVariant will (likely) be required for Model/View invocation
