CardSpace getting FAT

The CardSpace team blogged about a new "feature" of .net 3.5. You can now work with CardSpace on a windows system that has its system drive formatted with the FAT filesystem...

They write:

We’ve received a surprising amount of feedback (some of the earliest from Pamela Dingle) that customers are still using FAT file systems and this is causing problems.

I am surprised too. What will be next? CardSpace running on windows95? Help!

Sure, the cardstore is still encrypted twice... but still...
I believe that this is a step back. Security sacrificed on the altar of (what?) laziness/stupidity/...

As a security auditor I would question the risk management of anyone who still uses FAT in 2007.
