There's the onGestureOccurred signal for one-shot gestures. Does this signal fulfill your needs?

I'm thinking this refers to bad documentation. The documentation doesn't really distinguish between continuous and instantaneous gestures.

The use case for this is since there is no tapAndHold I am attempting to bake my own - my idea for this was to:

timer = setTimeout(handleTapAndHold, 800) onGestureStart
clearTimeout(timer) onGestureEnd

I don't think onGestureOccurred fulfills this requirement?

You're correct: for that use case the TOUCH gesture primitive (which has start/end semantics) needs to be made available through the QML bindings.
