I visited the Google Maps people here in Sydney a few months ago. They 
told me they browser sniffed, and used VML client-side if IE was being 
used and rendered to JPEG server-side otherwise. (Something like that.)  
The ability/decision to optimise delivery based on the capabilities is 
very pragmatic.

Funny if Google was the main user of MS' VML :-)
