Qt compiler tool names

I was wondering why Qt compiler tools (qmake, moc, uic, etc.) are installed
with each name suffixed with -qt4 (qmake-qt4, moc-qt4). This diverges from
how upstream names its tools (specifically, without qt4 added), so it
caused me a little confusion when these tools appeared to be missing.

My solution was to add /usr/lib/qt4/bin to my PATH since this directory
contains symlinks that use upstream's name. However, I would prefer the
tools to be installed in /usr/bin without -qt4 appended. Is there a reason
why this shouldn't be done?
