It's not impossible at all -- Spartan is a copy of the IE engine code, repackaged as a Metro app and will be updated on an ongoing basis through the Windows App Store model. Anything that doesn't work in that space like ActiveX/COM, Browser Helper Objects, etc. are all stripped out.
IE11 will also remain in Windows 10, with good ole' MSHTML.DLL and all that other cruft that developers (and parts of Windows itself) have been taking hard dependencies on for 15+ years. It will receive security updates, performance improvements and so on, but it will not be updated at the pace of Spartan.
Maybe shipping two browsers with the OS will upset some people, but this should actually work out pretty nicely.

Guess what? I believe that homosexuality is flat out wrong as well. So flame on.
Should take a week or two.
America is supposed to be the land of the free, home of the brave. Not the land of the willing to consent to invasive and abusive practices because of drummed up fear.
But you're right, we've got copies of the open source code, so in the sense that the code is the project, it lives on.
