Yes. What I meant is that it is better for an application 
developer to have a GUI framework that is predictable and solid 
than to have the highest possible performance.

So if someone provides a drawing canvas then I'd rather have 
correctly drawn anti-aliased primitives (like bezier curves) than 
something that is 20% faster but incorrect. Just an example.

Just in general, predictable, less to worry about, so that the 
application developer can focus on the application and not the 
peculiarities of the GUI framework.

Sounds reasonable.
