Ah, ok, I read it that way as qtwebkit and khtml are current source
package names.

Yes, please.

Basically this was a question during my talk "What's new in Stretch?"
today after having copied this list from the release notes on one of
my slides.

The question came from a developer of a webkit-based web browser (Cc'ed).

Then webkit should be removed from the list. I just noticed now that
it's no current source package name anymore. it has been removed from
unstable in 2013.
