As a long-time user of keepassx, though not familiar with Qt and so not
really able to help with the maintenance aspect, I would very much like
to see the release of Buster have either a well-supported keepassx or a
smooth transition to a suitable alternative.  If for some reason a
direct transition with symlinks and all is not possible, then at least a
mention in the release notes (perhaps with instructions on how to
manually migrate before and/or after upgrade).
