I think you're being pedantic. If safety is your top priority it trumps other criteria and can, for all intents and purposes, be viewed as the only criteria when selecting a starting point (i.e. RWD versus AWD).

I agree. It can. And AWD with winters can provide even more safety. What you're doing is making a compromise. You're sacrificing added safety for "feel". And that's is about choices. Choices typically involve some form of compromise. I suspect you've determined the RWD with winter tires provides an acceptable level of safety and therefore your decision is now based on other factors.
