I'm going to say -1 on adding IE specific .htc files and so on. The 
three items you mention in particular are fixed in IE7 (or at least, are 
supposed to be), and that will be pushed to IE6 users via Windows 
Update. People actively using CSS selectors like that should also know 
about the (relatively) straightforward workarounds for IE6. Hard-coding 
them into Drupal, save where they're absolutely necessary, means less 
flexibility for designers in the future as the problems are fixed.
