Who is the "we" in this plan? (The GNOME team? The webkit2gtk maintainers?
The release team? The security team?)

How confident can we be that the necessary starting-point version is
going to get unblocked and included in buster? Is webkit2gtk 2.24 unblock
request <https://bugs.debian.org/926929> considered to be a prerequisite
for being able to do ongoing security updates to webkit2gtk in buster?

At the moment I'm not sure whether the desired solution to
epiphany-browser unblock request <https://bugs.debian.org/924974> is to
update epiphany-browser to 3.32.x, or to have it removed from buster.
I'm reasonably sure 3.31.x is not what we want to be shipping for 2 years,
