My understanding is that there's no objection from the Apple WebKit team to this. We do want to be able to vet the substitution files, as I wrote in comment 5, hence we do want some control over them (e.g. by having them as part of WebKit rather than the content blocker). With that restriction, I'm pretty sure patches are welcome!
