That's not true. Perhaps WF-2 authors writings apps for the general 
internet will "demand" IE compatibility, however the VAST majority of 
web apps written, just like the vast majority of software written, is 
in-house software written for business' intranets. In those cases, which 
as I said is the vast majority of web apps written, they CAN demand that 
users (i.e. employees at the company) use a compliant browser - i.e., 
not IE (pun not intended :D).
