That sounds great to me. Do you have someone in WebKit's security group?
There are two people nominated but pending approval (Vincent -
GNOME/SuSE and Josseline - Debian), it would be good to get more distro
people in there, I think; I'm planning on writing an email asking what
we could do in order to get those nominations accepted. Would be good to
have more WebKitGTK+ people in there too, what do you think Martin? =)
