There are many existence proofs of doing WIMPy UI using
4.X browsers. Check out halfbrain.com, websentric.com,
desktop.com, etc... It isn't pretty (for the developer)
but you don't need IE5. The example that Dave Winer
pointed to (see http://irights.editthispage.com/) could
have been done for both NN4 and IE4 but its certainly
easier to do in IE4. 

Cordially from Corvallis,
