Apple's HTML 5 doesn't seem so open to me

I just picked up on this link to Apple’s HTML 5 demos on Twitter. I browsed to the site in Firefox 3.6.4 and Chrome and was met with the following message when I tried to view one of the demos:

No HTML5 for you without Safari.png

I’m sorry, I thought HTML 5 was supposed to be an open standard accessible to any HTML 5 capable browser? Steve Jobs made a point of saying that Apple is really open because it has embraced HTML 5 recently. Is that only if you use Safari? That doesn’t sound very open to me at all.
