I'm not sure why you would do that since IE7 is the least used version of IE with Firefox and Chrome being more used than it is.  Do you have a customer that requires IE7?

yes - we have several clients that mandate IE7 - others who want to take advantage of IE9

OK.  IE7 Mode in IE8 supports things that a real IE7 doesn't.  For the public internet, Firefox and Chrome have about 50% of the market now and they seem to support more of HTML5 than IE does.
