I also think that dropping the “+” is fine and I do not expect controversy.

Something that I was wondering: Would it make sense to use “GTK WebKit” as
the name of the port? That would make it consistent with “Qt WebKit” and
“WPE WebKit”. On the other hand “WebKitGTK” (with or without the “+”) is
already a well-known name, so I am slightly more inclined towards keeping
it that way.
