Geoffrey has a good point. V8 will develop along Blink. With a diverging Blink implementation from WebKit, the JS ABI must change as well. It is not clear if the V8 team is willing to make V8 compatible with other rendering engines, or if they even are able to. I expect that this won't be possible quite soon. WebKit projects should consider moving to, or moving back to JSC. Allowing both projects to continue quickly.
