KPlotting is intended for applications, where the plot isn't a central
part of the application, but simply a means to visualize a set of data
points that are secondary to the application.
It is a bit like comparing QTextEdit and KatePart. You probably would
not want to use the former in KDevelop or Kile, while it is fine in an
application, where you just need to enter some comment.

KPlotWidget is a QWidget class. I am not familiar with QML either, but
if you manage to add QML support that reuses the logic about axis
scaling, label placement, etc. then let me see it.
If possible, please keep the discussion on the list. I also added the
kde-edu list to CC, because KPlotWidget is used by many educational
applications. Maybe while those applications get ported to KF5, we can
get some additional input for improvements, without bloating it.
Thanks for your interest.
