I'd really prefer to avoid another hack if possible. Sites that are updating do
get the latest versions of Prototype (which has this problem and has long since
been fixed). We could cater to sites using older libraries that do bad things,
or we can let these sites naturally evolve as more browsers implement the spec. 

store.sony.ca is specifically sending IE the meta tag telling it to use it's
old compatibility binding for the DOM (IE8 mode):
<meta http-equiv="x-ua-compatible" content="IE=8" />

This lets them update on their timetable. I plan to contact them as well to
request that they update to newer versions of prototype.
