I'm not sure if this is "breaking the silence", as it's just a reiteration of their previously stated position. There's a small window of possibility hinted at, but the phrasing is very political:
Interestingly, they say WE in the first part and yet have never participated in WebGL, nor have they ever made any sort of proposal or even given a direct and specific critique of what their security concerns are. I think it would be healthy for them to make a proposal for 3D on the web, even if it were at odds with WebGL. It would mean they are talking and that's the first step.
I don't think we will ever "hammer out the security issues" to the satisfaction of some people. All we can do is get a few years of reliable operation under our belts. They either come around or they don't.
Does Windows Phone 8 do curated apps? Can someone write a WebKit based browser for them? If so, perhaps IE support won't really be relevant :-)
