The security archive doesn't scale to play catchup with all those
rdeps. There's too many things missing in dak on security-master
to make that a viable option (and unfortunately development on
this is mostly stalled).

You're best technical bet would be to upgrade to new webkit releases in
stretch point releases, this would allow proper binNMUs and allow
people to testdrive via s-p-u. But that's up for the SRMs to
decide (and I doubt they want to deal with that kind of API
"stability" either).
