The Colt .380s - Gov't, Mustang - and their derivatives allow the safety to be engaged with the hammer down, but the slide can't be racked with the hammer down and safety engaged.

If the hammer is cocked, and the safety engaged, the slide can be racked.
I think they have that backwards; I can see a (very) small benefit to being able to engage the safety of a gun in unknown condition, or to load the gun on-safe, but if you have to cock the hammer, then engage the safety, then rack?
I also dislike losing the "slide lock" feature in exchange for rack-on-safe.

I've owned two PDs, and was unaware that it offered conditions of readiness different from a 1911.
