...and contribute any changes they need to support the platform.

Look at the KHTML/WebKit controversy to see why that's either not going to happen, or the project to which they contribute likely won't be that interested in their participation.

For all their talk of standards, they seem to want to be the only ones that define those standards...

Odd example to choose...

They got a healthy codebase and for 'little' extra work got a rendering engine to rival/surpass the competition at the time (FF and IE6)

Now the same engine is used by Apple, Rim, Nokia, Google and others.

I'm saying anything they do will be a fork. That's all.
