Because it's a temporary situation. We still have a way forward in KF6
(which will open in a few months).
Generally, getting Grantlee into KF5 now also establishes the wrong
precedent. Grantlee should be split into two repos each with a tier 1
library (KF6::TextDocument and KF6::TextTemplate). The two are
independent and have nothing to do with each other aside from
authorship. That seems to be something you were objecting to, so I want
to make sure that's something addressed on its own. The two KF6
libraries will then follow the KF6 naming conventions etc.

Not at all. I agree that the two libraries should be consistent with the
rest of the Frameworks.

Only temporarily :).
