This is silly -- s/Webkit/Linux kernel/ -- anyone can fix bugs yet there are also plenty of quirks, some of which get standardized into features. Does that mean the Linux kernel as the most popular *nix implementation is a bad thing?

As long as it's not the only *nix implementation of note there's no problem.

I can graph Linux adoption and project an inaccurate date in the future when there will be no notable other *nix implementations. Whether everything will continue to be as okay as it is now is debatable; I'd say that we've already reached "only one notable implementation" land when it comes to certain categories of use. It will get worse and I just hope that nothing really bad happens as a result.
