How to create global #include from QtDesigner plugin

I'm working on QtDesigner plugin for my widgets library. I use following code:
@QString MyWidgetPlugin::includeFile() const
It works well, but uic produces local include like this:
But I want to install my widget library into system and use it in number of projects,
so I need to generate something like:
I found an undocumented feature in the QtDesigner sources - one can return "<mywidget.h>" instead of "mywidget.h" in his includeFile(), and then include recognized as global, and correctly handled by uic.
The question is simple - can I use this feature, or it's an implementation detail and will be removed in the next versions of Qt?

It is unlikely to be changed, but if it isn't documented there is most probably no guarantee.
But one should mention that <code>#include <...></code> and <code>#include "..."</code> behaves exactly the same, except that <code>"..."</code> looks in the current directory first, then in global directories. From the technical point of view there is no need to use the <code><...></code> notation just to include global files.
