Maye you should ask the question about Q either the Q continuum, on the 
9fans mailing list or the tuhs list and some of the old unix beards can 
answer? It would be really interesting to know or at least hear their 
thoughts. My theories:

Q is a weird letter that's not often used in the alphabet, unlike a,b,c, 
and a big Q, so it's not a context specific prefix. Compare to, well, B 
for bio-stuff.

Q as in, queue. Maybe at some point they had some kinda queue 
implementation for dynamic filesystems, and the Qid was some kinda 
identifier in that list?

Q as in, star trek. I mean, who knows what they thought, maybe it was 
just some fun idea.
