Microsoft licences AOL to use IE6 royalty free for 7 years. Does this mean anything to you? You might not think so, but it actually does. AOL snapped up Netscape a while back, so what are they going to do with it? They could simply dump it, in which case what happens to its development? (Probably not a lot). AOL users are then going to be stuck with the same browser for the next 7 years. Everyone else can upgrade when Microsoft brings out the next version of its OS (called Longhorn), or stick with what they've currently got. Which then leaves developers where exactly? Do we spend the next few years writing pages for a browser that is going to become increasingly out of date? The mind boggles.
