This mailing list is the wrong place for feature requests. The list 
webkit-dev is about the development of WebKit.

I suggest you to open a bug report on https://bugs.webkit.org and/or on 

In the bug report, you should explain your use cases. Bugs with 
interesting use cases get a lot more attention than ordinary feature
