How are tier 1 framework qm translations supposed to be loaded?

It turns out that we have several problems with loading translations in Krita. Qt and ki18n translations seem to follow different rules with regards to users setting a language other than the platform language, on different platforms. 

But it also seems that the qm-based translations from the tier1 frameworks we ship aren't loaded at all, unless the user is using distro packages for everything, in a plasma environment. I can see code in ki18n that tries to load the translations for Qt, but the frameworks don't seem to have that startup hook, and I don't know how it's supposed to work...
