My mail is a bit late, but the programs I'm mainly concerned about are Internet Explorer and Windows Media Player. If someone wants to play a game in a VNC X server that's a crazy enough setup that setting an extra registry key doesn't matter, but running IE in VNC isn't that unusual.

Well, without opengl we can still render to the NULL hwnd, even if it has issues like not working with a compositing Window manager(Windows disables aero when a ddraw app doesn't specify a clipping window). OpenGL refuses to do that.
