So, "legacy" support for the 30% of the general populace using IE8
(and I've tried it, it's pretty slow), and no support at all for the
17% using IE6 and IE7 (and I've tried it, it doesn't work correctly).
 Ouch, that's half of your average site's users who won't get the
enhanced version or get it but have it run slowly. Of course, every
site's audience is different, for some sites -- web programming sites
and such -- you'd be on pretty safe ground.
Still, it's early days, hopefully they'll be able to improve the IE8
support and add support for IE6 and IE7 (until those finally actually
die -- and wouldn't that be nice!).
