If applications opt-in to the new API, yes. I recommend switching to using Konstantin's fork of QtWebKit as your upstream, as all major distros have already done.

Nope, it's mandatory. Storage process is used for databases and for service workers. Not for cookies. You're not going to save a significant amount of space... unless you try static linking WebKit into it. :P
