Some good myth-busting there.
Only thing I'd disagree on is Google leading the way, as it ignores the years of work done by Mozilla, Opera and Apple with the WHATWG, which defined and implemented about 75% of what became HTML5, but most importantly proved that rival browsers could produce compatible standard implementations, while competing on speed and features instead.
Which isn't to dismiss Google's contribution - they've done more than all the others to get the idea of HTML5 out there with the public.
As for the bank insisting on IE6, that's a declining case. Even my wife's employer - a lagard government department whose internal applications have never been migrated off IE6, has installed Firefox so that staff can access the outside world - which seems an amazingly sensible policy towards dealing with the IE6 legacy. So sensible, I'm surprised it was allowed.
What is driving that is the increasing number of sites out there that are ditching IE6 support - we don't do it any more, as it's reached the same 'too small to care' list as Mac users . . .
