I know from reputable inside sources that IE8 will feature a supported side-by-side (i.e. with IE7) configuration.
I don't know how you can say that but your source is not reliable. It's certainly something we will be looking into but it is not booked on the plan at the moment. There is very little booked on the plan at the moment other than there will be future releases of IE:)
