If you are including or inheriting core-image-base, so it should be
OK. The problem when basing your work on core-image-minimal is that it
does not include MACHINE_RECOMMENDS, which include the firmwares.

I know there are someone in the mailing list with success on using
QT5.x, I cannot remember who or which branch.
However I have never saw this:
PACKAGECONFIG_append_pn-qtquickcontrols = " accessibility"
PACKAGECONFIG_append_pn-qtbase = " accessibility"

You don't exactly need to have your BSP ported to fido in order to
test the build of any imx6Q machine with fido and QT. Take, for
example, imx6qsabresd and see if you can build the image.
