Sure. The main point is for sure the integration of KIO. Without kdewebkit, 
any app which is using QWeb* classes does network interactions without KDE 
technologies. Other points are for example:
* using KDE icons in context menu
* using KDE plugins (for example nsplugins flash)
* KDE dialogs for javascript dialogs (alert, file picker, ..)
