I wouldn't call it "high brow", I'd call it practical.

I feel no obligation to design around the limitations of substandard
browsers.  Just because Bob decides to release Bob's Big Browser and some
subset of people decide to use it in all its incorrect-HTML-parsing glory,
that doesn't mean I have any obligation to support it.

People who use these browsers have made their beds -- let them lie in them.
