Oops, sorry, I misspoke, I mean IE9 and IE6.  I probably should’ve said Windows 8 though since IE actually calls the OS on Vista and above.

Many factors go into deciding about what will be updated with Microsoft update, so updates for already shipped products would have to be evaluated at the appropriate time.

I am a bit confused, did you maybe mean IE9 and IE7 instead of IE8 and IE6? Actually old IE6 browsers should be the least problem unless they have not installed one of the IDN plug-ins. Sorry if I’m getting it wrong…

Would it be possible to update IE7 and IE8 installations to IDNA2008 through the Microsoft update procedure?

There's been talk of the transition time and lots of mention that IE6 doesn't support IDNA.  It is probably worth considering that any new IDNA2008 behavior (eszett or otherwise) likely won't happen until IE9 (and at the rate the WG is moving, maybe IE10 :))  As noted with the IE6 installed base, it is difficult to move the installed base to a "new" version (or even a patched version), so there could still be IDNA2003 browers a decade from now.
