I think it's more that Google is wed to V8 while WebKit is wed to JavaScriptCore. Supporting both meant that there was an abstraction layer which prevented using a JS DOM implementation. My reading of the relevant threads gives me the impression that WebKit will be doing so as well now that JSC can be assumed.
