[css-color] Safari 7 is color-managing CSS colors?

It looks like Safari 7 has begun managing CSS colors, without
mentioning this to anyone.  In particular, if you visit
<http://www.libpng.org/pub/png/colorcube/colorcube-pngs-iCCP-CSS.html>
on a wide-gamut (non-sRGB) monitor, the squares and their borders will
be different colors on Chrome and Firefox, but the same color in
Safari 7.

(If you visit it on an sRGB monitor you won't see anything special,
since the border colors will be in sRGB even in the browsers that
don't color-correct.)

I haven't yet tested whether they color-manage untagged images as
well, as required by CSS.

Anyone from Apple have any further details?
