Ummm... we knew Blink has changed and that you would like to keep your new definition. This is exactly why Apple is suggesting another definition. Am I missing something?

The alternatives here are:

(a) Safari changes and breaks content
(b) Mozilla and Chrome change and break content
(c) We compromise on something new

Note that content is already incompatible thanks to (a) and (b). That's why we agreed on (c).
