Yes, I'm painfully aware that Apple does not support Carbon in 64-bits. This is
why I'm learning 64-bit QtWebKit.
I thought as you do that "Theoretically, a plugin with a Cocoa event model and
CoreGraphics drawing should work".
Unfortunately, I think the code in PluginViewMac.mm is not ready for this

I can't address your first question but have a comment.

Looking around some more, it turns out much of the code in this file is not
compiled if NP_NO_CARBON is defined. This leads me to believe that the version
of WebKit that comes down with Qt 4.7.3 is not ready for OSX 64 bit plugins.
You are aware that Carbon isn't available in 64 bits? Theoretically, a plugin
with a Cocoa event model and CoreGraphics drawing should work, though the code
you point out looks suspicious.
