I'm not exactly a developer, but here's my suggestion for an answer:

Qt3 was dropped by the original development team. Whilst the updates from Team TDE are minimal, and whilst Qt3 is a bit dated, it is still a viable development platform.

Plans are under way to (eventually) upgrade TDE to Qt4 via the TQt Interface. TQt Interface will act as a way to upgrade to each new version of Qt without having to recode the whole of TDE.
