I know the discussion shifted to the daily preach about the importance
of upgrading. But to answer this very question:

Yes you can. You grab libwebkit(and any missing dependencies) from
ABS(or SVN) and build them. If everything builds successfully with
the current packages you have in your system, then you are good to go.

Having said that, webkitgtk(Upstream name) develops fast. They have 
1.1.15.x stable releases and 1.1.16.x releases. 
Some browsers(e.g Epiphany) develop for a not yet released version
(using SVN trunk or GIT API).

Long story short, you would need updated packages If you want the latest
and greatest from a webkit-based browser.
