IMHO they will break sooner than later. They are going unsupported and IIRC
also getting out of CI. It's just a matter of time.

The 6-12-18 months they will still be buildable and usable are the time to
look for an alternative, or to enhance QJSEngine/QWebEngine, so that they
are good for KDE. According to qt-interest, some commercial and LGPL users
seem to face the same problems, therefore The Qt Company is probably open
to enhancements.
