They're not going to remove it in their legacy modes, but so what?
IE's legacy processing is basically a more elaborate version of other
browsers' quirk modes, which other browsers don't have to worry about
because everyone writes separate IE and non-IE code paths.  It should
be enough if Microsoft is willing to remove support in their new
standards modes.
