To my knowledge, E-tag is handled at the networking level, and so is not 
implemented in WebKit itself. WebKit on Windows and OS X uses Apple's 
CFNetwork library, WebKit on Qt uses Qt's networking code, WebKit on 
GTK+ uses libcurl, so the question is really whether each of those 
networking libraries supports E-tag headers (and I don't know the answer 
for any of those, though I strongly suspect CFNetwork does).
