The test pages were 'any browser' compatible so Netsurf didn't have to do
far more than the other browsers.
I'm not sure that logically follows. NetSurf still has to know how to do
far more than the other browsers, for pages that /do/ contain more modern
features, and selective amnesia might be even more inefficient overall. (I
don't know for sure as I don't know that much about the layout engine in
NetSurf, but your logic seems faulty to me).
Also, define "any browser" compatible. These days, I'd take that to mean
lots of CSS and not Fresco-friendly; YMMV.
