I don't think the status of QtWebEngine in Guix is totally clear, but
you should be optimistic :)

In general, the requirements for software that is included in Guix are
1) the software must be free software and 2) it must fit within the Free
System Distribution Guidelines:

As you may know, QtWebEngine is based on the Chromium codebase but is
focused on rendering of web content rather than offering a complete web

There was some controversy about the addition of the ungoogled-chromium
package to Guix, but the objections to it were unfounded.

The QtWebEngine team says they take similar steps to avoid problems with
upstream Chromium as we did with ungoogled-chromium:

So, I bet that QtWebEngine will be fine for Guix.

If there is more controversy about QtWebEngine we will moderate the
discussion so that it remains respectful, focused, and without pointless

A practical note: Building Chromium from source requires a very powerful
computer, with lots of RAM, disk space, and the fastest CPU you can
find. I bet that QtWebEngine is similar.
