In reality, most web developers have no clue about what the standard says in edge cases, which is just fine: neither do most other people.

But the result is that it's very rare to find cases that are really developed "to standard".

Even worse, though, on mobile right now people aren't even trying to develop to standards. UA sniffing and locking out of non-WebKit UAs and use of -webkit-prefixed things even when standard alternatives are available is rampant and purposeful. And when you ask these people to develop to standards they just laugh at you.
