I agree, but the question is whether in this case there really is a lack 
of adoption (in content), or whether on the contrary, non-IE browsers are 
being disadvantaged because they don't support this feature. I agree that 
if the content using this is insignificant, that we should drop the 
feature, but then why would Microsoft not want to simplify their code and 
drop it also?
