I don't think that this is correct.  You may have run into a failure case but in general we do as well if not better than CS3/CS4 on this.  I feel pretty confident about saying this, because the technique that both products use was born out of a collaboration between Microsoft Research and University of Washington.  You can read more about that on my blog:!1AD33AA162CE96C2!506.entry 
Hi Matt

I did notice that it happens primarily in cases where you didn't rotate around the camera axis, so hand shot instead of on a tripod.
I've done some exports to HD View.
You can see them on

Can't wait to ssee the many improvements Research is still working on.

Too bad ICE doesn't allow you to create a panorama with zoomed in pictures, so with a tool like HD View you could zoom in to some portions of the picture and have them with better detail , like with Photosynth. Also one day I hope to see an easy application where you can truefully walk through a recreated 3d environment based on your pictures, so like Photosynth but with all pictures visible.
