We're talking about two different things here.  Dart and Javascript are
designed to be cross platform languages that can be run in any browser.
WebKit-Gtk and its GObject Introspection bindings are designed to be used
in applications with built-in web browsers.

Certainly, you can't expect everyone on the web to be running WebKit-Gtk
and various interpreters installed on their systems.
