Anders can you please try to be more positive and constructive about your posts.

Is it not obvious here that one can use a Shim, and that older browsers never are
retrofittted with newer standards?

I agree with Tony that this looks very much like trolling, much like many 
of your posts to  the WebID Community Group [1].  

CGs do require the good behavior of its members to function, as they are open to
all to join.

This then gives fodder to meta trolls like Harry Halpin who by falacious arguments
relying on guilt by association and innuendo [2] then use this behavior to push people 
to shut down  conversations that actually do matter. 

Henry

[1] where you keep posting even though as you admitted recently on this
   list you know nothing about RDF, which is a minimum to join the conversation
   there ( or at least after a year of posts one would expect people to have at least
   actively participated there )
