Your audience for WF-2 is not IE users, it's web form authors, they're
the people you have to provide something new, they demand IE
compatibility, indeed most couldn't care about anything other than IE.
  This is the main reason why WF2 is so unlikely to get even as much
use as XHTML1.1 (correctly used, not just cargo cult "it's better")
the degradation on the most important UA is frankly crap.
