You're in luck. These days, even Microsoft agrees with you:

So when will we be able to drop IE6 support in MediaWiki completely? What
metrics/thresholds can we use?

I would suggest to set a percentage of worldwide usage as reported by some
"trusted" statistics reported, or possibly a percentage of Wikimedia
pageviews. 3% or 4%?

Any thoughts?
