They wouldn't even have to do that to gain some credibility: have IE supporting CSS2/3 and other open standards would be a reasonable sign that, in the specific field of web browsing, they'd be willing to play within a set of common rules. So far they let IE development rot, and due to its intentionally broken support they slowed down acceptance of those standards by years.
