For anyone who cares and wants to take the time to give Microsoft a nudge, a bug has been reported on this to the IE9 team and you can add your "I can reproduce this" flag to the bug report.
The easiest way (and I use "easiest" rather loosely) is to sign on directly to the Microsoft Connect system. It requires a Windows Live (Hotmail) ID.

The bug ID is 598901 and the report is titled "Color management problem when using wide gamut monitor".
You can leave a comment in addition to your "I can reproduce" flag if you wish.
I have hope that they will get this fixed before final release for two reasons:
- The Windows Photo Viewer in Win7 works correctly and uses the monitor profile so they can do it if they want to.
- Initial publicity for IE9 seems to imply the IE9 team intended for this to work. They mention compatibility with both V2 and V4 ICC profiles and it doesn't make much sense emphasizing that unless they are going to use the monitor profile.
Firefox just seems to get slower and slower for me and it sounds like the new version of FF is going to take a while to make it out of beta.
