I'm having trouble squaring the above with this, below, unless you're
telling me that EOTL and EOT Classic would co-exist in IE going forward:

So does this mean IE would have a dual-implementation supporting both EOT
file types? I guess that's my question.

You have nothing to do. It will work like it did in IE8 and earlier.
(Actually, it will work better as bugs will be fixed).
