IE is still (unfortunately) the browser used by a lot of people, and if
there is a way to work around IE brokeness - I think it's a good idea to 
do it.

Complaining to M$ doesn't work - people will just end up buying IIS 
instead :-)

Seriously, not sure why is the veto invalid - if the choice is between 
having it working for 90% of the people and doing it 'right' - it is 
worth probably more discussion and a pragmatic decision :-) I would vote 
for fixing it for the 90% of people - at least until IE gets down to 
some 49%.
