The part that would be OK to share would be the parsing.

I understand, but I think there are different requirements there.
For these things injected at runtime we’d want the API to be stable, whereas for inside the project we want the best possible performance even if many implementation details are exposed.
WebKitTestRunner does something like this, and do I think that it has requirements very similar to other “injected at runtime” uses.

That does not sound like a good idea to me for the specific reasons I mentioned above.
