Qt Mobility documentation should clearly document the Symbian capability requirements for third-party applications

      Description

      Different Qt Mobility C++ libraries and QML plugins require different set of capabilities to run. For example system info API only needs ReadUserData, gallery API requires ReadUserData and WriteuserData to work, location examples require at least NetworkServices, Location and ReadUserData. Some of the capabilities are within the reach of small third-party application teams trying to publish their apps to Ovi Store, some are not. The user experience of failing to define necessary capabilities to you application is awful: it may be that your application just does't install, or worse, installs but doesn't run (you're using Qt Mobility through a QML import statement) without giving you any sane error note.
