Comment 7 for bug 1124071

I agree with Svenn-Arne.

Repeater can be useful for creating static components.
Of course we can dynamically create Tabs component with Repeater inside,
but it's spike solution!
Yes, we need dynamic qml object creation, but only for using like that:
var myNewTab = component.createObject(tabs)

Just think what if I want to display the same tab in two Tabs components?
It's impossible without dynamic tabs management, like
tabsItem.tabs.add(...)
