Public API for creating user defined basic types

As explained "here":http://stackoverflow.com/questions/15535694/how-to-create-custom-basic-type-in-qml, creating user defined basic types is not currently supported, but can be done through private parts of Qt Quick.
I feel this is a limitation as I want to be able to define my own intuitive basic type that acts as a single construct, while still having different properties (like the Qt.vector3d with x, y and z). My issue with defining object-type properties is that its properties act separately (different signals, bindings, etc.). It also adds a level of indirection, which makes it a hassle to store the data in the property-holding class (instead of in the object of the property itself).
Will the API for creating user defined basic types be made public anytime soon?
In the meantime, can I go ahead and use the private API, or are there major changes planned?
Since it's getting to private API, you should rather ask this question on the interest mailing list, you'll find Qt's developers/maintainers there (this forum is more user oriented)
