Well you could argue that because Service Packs have long development schedules, this would allow developers to make their applications compatible with newer browsers. I think users who still use IE6 in 2011/2012 is a little worrying, as it is comparatively unsecure.

I think the problem also is Microsoft haven't published an official date of when IE6 will stop being supported. I can only presume it will officially end when XP ends in April 2014. IE7 is included in Vista and IE8 in 7.
