Of course it can -- by hardcoding the Javascript (and CSS!) 
*functionality* in EWW (or a derived mode specifically for browsing
Info-HTML).  You don't need to be able to parse and interpret
Javascript or CSS to provide equivalent functionality to the
Javascript and CSS recommended by Emacs.

Of course this violates DRY to some extent.
