I don't think there is anything preventing us from packaging
QtWebEngine.  In fact I have attached a patch that does just that.

I haven't fully audited the source yet, but they seem to be doing the
Right Thing (scrubbing non-free and otherwise unneeded stuff).

Can you try this patch and ideally get something else (Qutebrowser) to
use it?
