@Blue Ink:

Microsoft has magical native APIs they use in Metro IE that Mozilla nor Google has access to, so I would say that is already the case. The reason they get away with this is because the DoJ no longer regulates Microsoft's behavior in regards to browser bundling.

Not really; the restrictions you mention only exist in Windows RT, which is not what I had in mind.

For the record, I think Microsoft would have gotten away with that DoJ notwithstanding, unless you are implying that Windows RT has monopolistic status in its market, in which case I would be really interested in knowing where you buy your vodka.
