Correct. The integration with KHTML is done in generic ways, which allows to
write other browser kparts - like kwebkitpart.

Correct, konqueror doesn't even link to KHTML.

Indeed the settings modules write to khtmlrc. It's not that hard to come up
with a more standardized config file (simply writing to konquerorrc might
even work, iirc KHTML reads from both khtmlrc and KGlobal::config()),
or (if other parts have too different settings) to come up with a way to only
show the config modules that relate to the user-chosen html-part.
