    1.)  Now that the IE user interface is hardware accelerated, it would technically be possible to have hardware accelerated "windowless" mode of Silverlight and and Flash.  Though the plugins would have to be updated to work in concert with this, do you see this as being something supported in the future?

    2.) Can we expect new APIs to have IE render to a Direct3D surface as to have hardware accelerated and GPU composable IE in our Direct3D based applications (ie WPF/Direct3D/etc)?  Something like the OLE IViewObject, but for D3D.
