It’s private API. No Chance. Beside of this you can only use it in your own App that make use of UIWebView (30% again).

That clause in apples license agreement covers in-app revenue otherwise known as the "Amazon clause". Afaik it contents that if you provide an app (even a free app) and you generate revenue from it, you're liable for 30% of your revenue to Apple no matter how you make it.

Obviously apple cannot demand 30% from everybody who receives money in the process of using their browser, because those third parties have no revenue sharing agreement with apple. There are other Browsers in the app-store, and no page you visit trough them and spend money at, will have to give Apple money. The same would apply to a "WebGL Enabled Browser" obviously. Of course you might not get it into the app-store for using that hack, but that's another story.
