The IEC/ISO is there to ensure compatibility between manufacturers (and the consumers benefit from it) - Just ignore the camera side for a moment

Let's go onto the strobes side? OK you have a safesync; but at the safesync output you are about to hook up several vendors together to light up your studio: an Alien Bee (6V), a Metz (24V) and an older Norman Monolight(?) - Now guess what: will one safesync device protect the Alien Bee here or the highest voltage/current of any one strobe will completely overwhelm the others? :O
