Not that I'm aware of.

I think the idea behind this proposal is that standardizing a UI
framework for C++ would be too difficult (seeing as we couldn't even
agree on a 2D graphics proposal, which is an ingredient in a UI
framework), so the web view fills the role of the UI framework: your
UI is built inside the web view. (Not saying that's a good idea or a
bad idea, just trying to explain the line of thinking.)
