Did you miss the "not that I think it's relevant" part, where I
thought I made it pretty clear that I didn't think it was relevant.  I
was simply rebutting your suggestion that because Safari/Mozilla

It uses the member only stylesheet, it's a member only document, if
that's really the defence for ignoring W3 process, it's a pretty poor
one.
