Not speaking for Ravindra, but one thing I can think of is performance.
Making Cairo *the* graphics substrate for Mozilla will be a no-brainer
for us only if we have a Cairo backend as fast as Win32 GDI on low-end

i.e. mostly just text, images and rectangles. It might be easier to
reach that goal if we avoid antialiasing the rectangles.
