Build option to build the kde/plasma QPA into a strict "KF5" (tier 1) QPA?
Forking sucks terribly and a tier 1 QPA might be interesting for eg. lxqt users (drawing them into KF5)

The repo is probably not that much of an issue.
Most users would get it from their distro and that could build two QPAs and ship the KF5 variant extra. Only exception are devs and gentoo users and it's not *that* much disk space.

Alternative solution would be git submodules, but that looks like quite some work (notably since you'd want the kf5 version that you still need to find some repo for to default off while the plasma version defaults on)
