Chris Wilson, IE group program manager, today told MIX07 that Microsoft 
may "need authors to opt into standards", suggesting a "compatible with 
IE 8.0" scheme.

"By asking authors to say 'I want standards behaviors' means we don't 
have to worry about standards compatibility. That means we can break our 
compatibility with layout and CSS. We can change DOM APIs without 
breaking any current pages," Wilson said.
