Sure! I think you're implying something more profound. That Apple won't move on this issue because it is ridiculous regarding the fan, but I'm not too sure about the electrical port protection. It is impossible to get electrocuted with the current setup, so maybe the EU is more concerned with the internal shielding of all appliances.
Apple have decided not to comply which means:
1. Apple can afford not to market their MacPro's to the EU (see point 7)
2. Apple think that the cost of redesign is not worth the effort, as I doubt they would make an EU only model. If they redesign, then that single design would be for established markets in toto. Almost like making a car that complies with every country's design rules.
3. Apple is betting on the EU making an exception on their product family and hope that public pressure will force the EU to rescind the requirement.
4. Apple have inside information that the EU is going to fall apart 'real-soon-now' and so the modification is pointless.
5. Apple are betting on grey/black market imports.
6. Apple have enough economic, multinational importance to ignore the EU altogether in a delusional world-view sourced from France.
7. Apple sell more than enough iProduct in the EU that already complies.
I'm actually quite happy about this as it adds to the current stratification of geo-politics.
