My guess is that the Safari developers want to ensure no significant web page differences between Safari and other modern browsers exist due to web page designers who are unwilling to buy a Mac in
order to test their pages in Safari. Not all browser makers interpret all standards exactly alike, so there can be unintended differences that simply won't be found otherwise, particularly as proposed
CSS3 features are implemented. The end result is a better experience for Mac buyers.
