No-one is saying "don't ship webkit". What is being asked is that a) you
ship webkit with a subset of functionality disabled if necessary for
now, and b) that you provide a general description of what you can't
provide cleanly using existing functionality.

If you really think it's necessary to come up with a workaround like
this, though, then you should be mailing the list and asking for QA or
Council approval, rather than doing it and then asking for forgiveness
later.
