I probably shouldn't be the one telling you this, but IE11 offers 1.2
now.  And I think that 1.2 has been accepted by IIS since Windows
Server 2008.  :)  Just more information in support of your thesis.
The MS HTTP folks did some testing and found that of the sites they
connected to (~1 million), around 16% accepted 1.2.

(Caveat: not my numbers, just my memory, you can ask Rob Trace for details.)
