But there's no such code. QtWebEngine is a "thin" wrapper around
Blink/Chromium. The idea is precisely that Qt currently does not have
the resources for maintaining its port/fork of a web engine, so
there's nothing to extract to avoid duplication. You would introduce
duplication by extracting that subset into its own library.

Probably a better approach would be researching a SVG library that
then Qt can use (again, by wrapping it).
