Why isn't QT theming configured by default

QT apps just look horrible by default on Zorin 16 Pro.
This should be a very trivial patch on the installer? Apps like VLC and Inkscape look very inconsistent by default.

This should just be a simple manner of configuring qt5ct to use gtk and updating the fonts.

I use qt5ct to theme QT apps into gtk2, as well.
However, there are good reasons to not have it default; first and foremost: Using qt5ct causes the application to load extremely slowly. Once it finally launches, it is quick enough... but that slow launch... it is killer.
You can easily imagine the complaints that would stem from it.

I only use it in order to make my desktop uniform - and I use very few QT apps.

slow loading times, even on higher end SSD powered systems
