I doubt this will ever be possible. Qt requires container elements to be copyable: https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-54685

I think this is the correct fix indeed. Actually it doesn't matter much if the member variables are const or not since they are private. The accessors are enough to mandate the object immutability IMO.

I'm afraid you are correct, copy assignment won't work, and neither would move assignment.

TL;DR: This patch looks good to me
