I'am afraid QtWebKit is using that for a layering violation. Each QWebPage
(wrapper around WebCore::Page + FrameView) can have a separate network engine
(QNetworkAccessManager) and we go from WebCore::Frame to WebKit to find out
which engine to use.

I wonder how/if we can migrate that to a bridge, but I am afraid we will still
need to have some access to Document/Frame/Page.
