Well, iff a) should be difficult (I _really_ have no idea about if it
could be, I am no JS expert) for one of the less often used browsers
(Opera, Safari, Konqueror) we should decide to not support it in core
and prefer to hava a clean API and clean JS without too many hacks to
achieve compatibility for any of those lesser used browsers. We should
have an API for contrib modules to provide JS for such browsers.
Personally, I'd be happy to not include support for IE in core as well
if it should be difficult to support.
