That wouldn't surprise me, and that could also mean that what official support they offer for embedding might be retired someday, like happened to Gecko, no? Curious though, maintaining a stable, backwards compatible API/ABI like Qt does must have obvious benefits even in a single project, even long before it becomes as huge as Chromium.

To me this looks like a(nother) point in favour of (potentially) Servo and WebKit which includes several toolkit bindings ...
