Hi Doug,

We are targeting these bugs for 8u40 and expect to fix them.  I suggest 
that you add yourself to some of the worst ones and keep an eye on 
things.  It may be that you will be able to come back but in the 
meantime, switching back to the SWT Browser hell will ensure that you 
will be able to render the pages in cases where WebView fails.

But I do see a number of report of WebView rendering problems on stack overflow and in JIRA. The comment in this one has me very worried.
