But don't you think that having just a single code base (let's call it: Core UX) implemented on Qt would have done their lives easier?


Not really at this timeframe.

It would make the life easier if it was there already, but these people have products to deliver and deadlines to meet - and code that exist already.

The important thing is that application developers have a consistent api to develop against. Whether the window manager is coded with xlib or turtles does not make or break the platform, even thought in the long run maintenance of consistent system is cheaper.
