You could argue that in conversation and on paper from here to eternity 
but making it happen on a screen with anything short of a very 
simplistic layout is a pipe-dream. And therein may lie an answer in and 
of itself: for example, you might feed the lower-IEs -- given you work 
with a willing and  progressive client -- a simple 600px fixed-width 
version based on the same principles as advocated for mobile handsets.

Dunno. No problem with zoom: 1; that I know of? And, other than that CCs 
mean repeated trips to the server whereas IE hacks in one style sheet 
involves dragging them along to to compliant [and somewhat compliant] 
browsers. As with any method  it depends on the site itself and personal 
opinion as to the most efficient way to handle the particular need at hand.
