Right, I was talking about this too.

If you wanted to use Lua then you'd need to find usable Lua bindings
for the GNOME platform that use gobject-introspection. A quick google
search gives me this: https://github.com/pavouk/lgi
Perhaps they won't work perfectly OK for your needs, but my point is
that it should be a lot less work to improve this than to write a new
Lua binding layer for WebKit from scratch. And as a bonus point you'll
get access to the rest of the platform through it too. So it seems to
just make sense to go that way.
