Just wondering if it is possible to use AA points to upgrade on a QF ticketed and operated flight?

No

Only option for upgrading QF flight (numbered and operated) are:
  • Qantas FF points
  • Qantas FF Upgrade Credits
  • $$$

As NM points out, QF flights cannot be upgraded. Also consider that an AA flight ticketed by QF cannot be upgraded using miles or eVIPs; they must be on AA ticket stock

Now that *A has alliance mileage upgrades (not yet fully rolled out) I wonder whether OW will introduce similar?

I doubt it somehow. AA used to have upgrade awards on QF and ( iirc CX), but they were removed; I wouldn't be holding my breath for cross-airline upgrades to be reintroduced

That would require the inclusion of a "One" in the OneWorld alliance :p.
