input type move is pretty simple to implement in IE with just
scripting, even with inline SVG provided by the plugin, it would still
just work. the IE filters etc. again would still just work.  I
certainly do not feel this should be rejected based on implementation
complexity in IE, when it's considerably easier than many other
features.
