That is what I see too. I wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something else wrt what differed between IE 
and other browsers. Thank you for confirming.

> what matters and what is reasonable
I hope that what matters and is reasonable applies to all browsers :) In all seriousness, I have no opinion on the 
topic as of yet. I was trying to understand what was specific to IE in one of the simplest test case I could come up with that
matched your description of the issue.

Maybe the IE team keeps saying it because it's true. Modulo border color, the very simple test case I posted
does render the same in two other browsers. But clearly, other test cases may yield different behaviors and it's
not clear to me that the spec defines them as bugs.
