Alas, I have none.  Merely rampant speculation and educated 
guesswork.  But, then again, I usually start with the assumption that 
statistics are wrong (because usually they are) and work from there.

Actually, this isn't the case.  If I remember correctly, IE began shipping 
on MacOS computers with the Microsoft investment about two years ago I 
guess).  My iBook SE (a year and a half old or so) came with IE 4.5 
preinstalled.  So, maybe not every Mac user uses 5.0, but I bet that the 
majority is on some version of IE.
