"Microsoft plans to stick with XDR" (and therefore assuming they are not interested in XHR2+AC discussion) is not an appropriate characterization, Maciej.  We have clearly stated we intend to ship XDR in IE8, yes.  We've also clearly stated that we intend to continue to participate in the XHR2+AC design, as we have some hope it can be improved to address our security concerns (as per my email on the subject to the public list, http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webapi/2008May/0103.html: last para, "We will of course continue to participate in the Web API WG's work on cross-domain access, and I hope that work can be made secure to our satisfaction (and therefore implementable in IE); ").

Indeed.

That would be ideal, from my perspective; I will not be attending on Thursday, as I'm heading out of town for the July 4 holiday.
