A benefit/possibility of doing a campaign around WebKit2GTK+/Web would
be to make the efforts more visible to the community and users.

It would certainly be possible to put together such list. Some
features I come to
think about that would be exiting to users are (not only including WebKit2GKT+)
*Wayland support [1]
*WebAudio implementation [2]
*Support for HighDPI canvas [3]
*Implement print preview in WebKit2 GTK+ [4]
*Context menus [5]

The issue a Web campaign would raise (as I view it) is the importance of
of a native Web experience in GNOME. The list with features would then
be more a matter of how to best present the campaign itself.

I absolutely agree.
