They will still be possible, with WebKit1. Since WebKit2 is about cross-process architecutre that improves interactivity, it's unrelated to a headless system that's by definition not interactive.
In other words, if I understand the proposal correctly, you'd still be able to use QWebPage, just without the WebKit2 cross-process architecture.
