One of the issues with Scarpino's packages is that they install in
/opt, which is fine by itself but means they cannot replace the
regular qt5 packages (I use the qt5-* packages I adopted to replace
the community ones).

On naming, I don't know. The official names are, eg.
"qtquickcontrols", and those are part of qt-project.org (official qt
module). I like qt5-quickcontrols-*, but it probably makes more sense
to go with qt5-qtquickcontrols-*. Simply qtquickcontrols-* is a bad
choice imho.
