This is true.

But this is not.  At least, the Mac port uses the following
Objective-C Cocoa APIs/frameworks that are not used in the NS port:

  Core Animation
  Core Image
  PDFKit (for rendering PDF data via `image-io' or `imagemagick' image types)
  WebKit (for rendering SVG data via `svg' image type)
