you meant to say, webkit was a fork of khtml that was started because APPLE - as always - couldn't work with others. But thanks to khtml's licence, they could not close webkit.

I tried both using the barcode scanner and typing it into the stock browser.

Well it runs, and can play Youtube videos with HTML 5 if QT5 has multimedia support correctly compiled in, and is also compatible with the Flash player plugin.
only issue I noticed is that if there is no network connection, and you type in a URL, it infinitely pastes the URL into the address bar...

Probably because switching to Qt would be a huge effort that buys them nothing. They already support all the major platforms that they're able to ship on and presumably have mature internal UI abstractions and build processes. Why risk breaking all that to switch to Qt when they don't primarily differentiate themselves on UI chrome?
