A rabbithole, a question of reparenting and changing a limited number of function calls, or pointless because QtWebKit already has a QQuickWebView class?

Whole point of QtWebView is to use platform specific backends on platforms where they do exist, at the cost of limited API. If you need to use platform-specific backends and want to replace QtWebEngine on platforms with no "native" browser component, it might make sense.
