This is not just a RFE. It is a security problem:

As far as I know, up to now close to 200 security fixes have been committed
to the webkit2 versions which have not been applied to 2.4.x (i.e. webkit1).

And there is a definite statement of the webkit development team
that there will be no security backports to old webkit versions.
See e.g. 

The linux distribution I use is already discussing if and when webkit 2.4.x 
should be dropped for security reasons.

If claws really wants long-term gtk2 support,
I think it would have to switch from webkit to cef for html mail support.
