Microsoft's Interoperability Principles and IE8

From the IEBlog entry:

We’ve decided that IE8 will, by default, interpret web content in the most standards compliant way it can. This decision is a change from what we’ve posted previously.

I'm sorry, what? No, really, I just fell off my chair, can you please repeat that? 

Microsoft recently published a set of Interoperability Principles. Thinking about IE8’s behavior with these principles in mind, interpreting web content in the most standards compliant way possible is a better thing to do. 

Is it April 1 yet? No? No. Man, they even have a press release about it. I am shocked. And awe'd. I can't believe what I am reading. Seriously, go read the IEBlog post. Read it twice even (I had to).

This is ginormous news for web development. I guess it will put the IE Box Model hack out of business. Thank you Microsoft, for coming to your senses on creating a web browser. Now lets not fuck up the implimentation of IE8.

Do you think the standards-complient browsers such as Firefox and Opera had anything to do with this decision?
