Well put!  It's one of the disadvantages of our industry's 
non-traditional job experience.  We just aren't exposed to that side of 
the business world.  Targeting and developing for small businesses 
exposes us to only aspect of business in general.  There are costs small 
businesses just don't have any concept of.  So you need to know who your 
client is targeting and if their main market is people who have IE 7 - 
you can't ignore it no matter what your thoughts on it are.  You also 
can't choose a Theme/Framework that doesn't support it either. It makes 
design and dev work more complicated and messy, but that's what the real 
world is after all.
