In the real world site owners are beginning to get their hopes up
about dropping support for IE6, an eight year old browser, soon.
Hopefully we don't have to wait as long as eight years for IE7's
market share to dwindle enough to be ignorable, but I'm not holding my
breath waiting for ajax and comet to be superseded in any practical
setting.

(I have two deployed apps using combinations of forever-frames, long
polling and other HTTP/browser abuses, and it's a disgusting mess.)
