Right, I got that mixed up. A few of the cookie-jar functions still access 
QSharedCookieJar directly (when the functions doesn't have a document 
pointer), but I guess that is just a bug in rarely/un- used functions.

Or a dbus interface :) that was by far the simplest solution for me and kept 
the WK2 API completely out of the equation. Also the kcookiejar and the 
webcore has almost 1-1 APIs so the code is much simpler than the existing 
implementation. But no, I am not sure if it is a good idea in the long run.
