To me, you're showing a bad graphic. And you know that during hollydays, the 
number of
people beeing at work is going down, so it fairly good explain why IE have 
lost some 2%.

The revelant graph is here, and IE is not loosing so much as you would like 
to say :

Whether you want or not, IE is not in a 'terminal decline'. IE6, maybe. IE7, 
slowly, but IE8
is slowly gaining what IE7 have lost. It's normal.
