If you mean:

  qt6 in wip meets pkgsrc standards, more or less (not about if it is
  troubled on mac)

  it's pkglint clean, more or less

  once added to pkgsrc, packages can depend on qt5 or qt6 and all can

then I don't see any procedure/rules stopping you from doing adding the
packages if you want to do so.  I also don't see any reason why I think
you shouldn't.

If you mean something else, I didn't understand....
