The concern is that Webkit is coming close to having a monopoly in the browser market. It effectively already does in the mobile and tablet space. When one rendering engine has a monopoly, that engine becomes the standard, complete with its bugs and foibles. That isn't good for an open, progressive internet. Webkit may have fewer bugs than IE6, but web standards are evolving all the time and the risk is that the Webkit way becomes the only way.
