As I understand it, the requirement that is actually set in stone is
that the IE support not require a binary plugin. Therefore, in cases
where straight script will do, I see no reason not to use straight
script. On the other hand, I would expect HTCs or other IE-specific
technologies to be used in cases where straight script did not provide
the necessary functionality for the emulation layer.
Of course I might be wrong and there might be excellent arguments for
using HTCs everywhere which I'm not familiar with.
