Fair point, but it is a top 20K site and if we're honest Webkit based browsers have the majority of the mobile market share; so, it's reasonable to assume that a majority of mobile developers at this point in time are targeting this behavior. The unfortunate part in all of this, for perf in a single architecture, web compat and interop issues were introduced and that isn't good for the web as a whole.

Altruisms aside, I do think it would be good to discuss this on an upcoming conference call and get this decided upon and the engines that need to change, do so.
