At the time this code was added, it was not true; you are saying it is now true, so the driver needs to be updated to reflect that. This seems completely reasonable to me.
And I would argue that *every* platform has fixed Objective-C runtimes. Again, you are assuming that everyone compiling and deploying an Objective-C program is willing to require that the entire Objective-C runtime and library stack be updated to the absolute latest revision on every deployment machine. This would certainly not be a reasonable assumption about any other language runtime.
