IE7 is not particularly well established. I think it is even below
Firefox 3.6 usage, and I expect it to go even lower given the big
marketing campaign for IE9.

You are optimistic on that one, I am not sure that Mozilla is interested
in fixing their sparc64 JIT :)

Yes, through conditional comments in the HTML [1]. However:
- it pollutes the HTML code
- it has unwanted side effects [2]

I did not test IE6. IMHO people/corporations that sill use it are
begging for troubles from HTML standard support up to security.

I only added these two CSS properties because they were harmless and
quite easy to rollback (just delete the lines).
