KHTML is NOT KMeleon. I think the original poster is talking about KHTML which is the rendering engine behind konqueror and Apple's new browser, Safari. So the poster is right when he says, "KHTML still appears to value performance and footprint over standards compliance which I think is a better weighting since that's more what users care about."

It would not be fair, or even remotely accurate to say, "They're reusing the rendering engine developed by mozilla.org which does have standards compliance as a goal." when referring to KHTML.

KHTML does indeed touch the rendering engine, it is it's own rendering engine and has no relationship to Gecko or Mozilla.org's rendering engine.
