Correct.

If you're after avoiding to do extra builds any point release should do.  I
don't see a big issue - we'd just publish a new Qt on a point release along
with the new qgis builds that already use them - as long QGIS is the only
dependant.

Why does that matter?  If the code builds with 5.9 and 5.10 then there's no
QGIS issue.
