Hmm, I would think that there are people monitoring webkti related security 
lists, the new engine is webkit based as well.

Also there might be commercial entities currently using QtWebKit who would 
want to get such update either as part of existing service agreements with one 
of the companies providing such services or through new agreements 
specifically set up for this.

The open nature of Qt makes resource allocation basically driven by demand.
E.g. all the code contributed by KDE developers was created because KDE 
applications needed it.
