This kind of decision is not easy to take and cannot necessarily be taken
by us developers (our employers may favor one particular license).

The WebKit project allows both Apple's new BSD or LGPL as far as I know.
So, as long as contributors use one of those 2 licenses for WebKit-EFL, I
don't see any problem with it.
