Internet Explorer Microsoft added a couple of new Christmas themed HTML5 demos to their IE9 test drive site which included Vorbis audio in addition to the AAC audio in the audio tags. They've since modified both demos to remove the Vorbis audio. It seems Microsoft is happy to use Vorbis in HTML5 pages internally, just not publicly.

To have not included vorbis audio at all could have been ignorance or just plain laziness...
To explicitly remove it after the fact when it clearly does no harm to have it there is just evil. They have gone out of their way to do something that provides no benefit whatsoever to users.
