I read this as "browsers do not want to update their code to work with Stix >

Well, this is a browser bug. Upstream stix changed to take into account issues
reported after their .0 release, it fixed actual correctness bugs and problems
indentified in big apps such as office suites, it took it months of work and
there's not way upstream is going back now 

I realise 1.1 is a it harder to process since 1.0 was a pile of raw elements
that lend them well to all sorts of hardcoded macros. Those hacks are history
and it's high time browsers adapted.
