It is safe for all CSS 2 browsers with the sole exception of IE5/Mac. 
That browser, and only that browser, requires the explicit width. 
The strict width requirement has been removed as of CSS 2.1, so no 
new browsers will require an explicit width for floated elements, 
either.  If shrink-wrapping is the preferred behavior, I would 
suggest leaving out the width for most browsers, and feeding the 
explicit-width approximations to IE5/Mac only.  (For filters to use 
for this purpose, see the Wiki.)
