WebKit is the native layer on top of WebCore offered by each port for
their platform, so the answer to that is: yes, WebKitGTK provides
GObject APIs which are all "specific" to it.

Similar to what? The system WebKit? I believe WebKitGTK+ uses pango in
OSX, so I suppose it depends on what pango does in OSX.

I'm not sure of what that Carbon shim approach is or how it works, but
WebKitGTK+ uses the current GTK+ theme for all its rendering,
including web forms, media controls, etc.
