What you are mentioning could also prove to be a better alternative to the proposed IE8 "activate web standards" tag.

You can get IE8 to go into standards mode (and avoid the meta tag), by using a HTML5 doctype which the other browsers have no issue with "[!DOCTYPE html]" (with angle brackets obviously)
