Whilst the goal is good, the reason supposedly given by Nokia is not. Apple only "controls" WebKit in that they are the biggest/main/sole/whatever contributor. If Apple takes WebKit in a direction not favourable to Nokia they (ie Nokia) can always fork it. Does Nokia have any influence over how Firefox is developed? I should hope not, at least not more influence than any regular user. - unless of course they exert this influence in the form of contributed code.
