I have no appreciation for how complex it would be to implement this, but the ability to allow web developers to have links "break out" of WebKit into Safari would be incredibly valuable. 

As Miles writes, if webkit could include "a url scheme for opening a URL in the default browser [to] allow websites / web apps to more seamlessly transfer users." - that would make the entire internet's job of transitioning to seamless mobile experiences way easier. 

There a million different ways that the apps can choose to implement webkit, which basically means that a site owner needs to bear the burden of testing/supporting them all. With a way to break out of the app's default, the "interesting" parts of the site would only have to support iOS Safari to guarantee a consistent user experience.
