Only IE6 and IE7 are unable to garbage-collect JavaScript objects, I think the other browsers can handle cleanup themselves.

Switch to direct attach for those cases. This means we don't need to clean up data and events when elements are removed from the DOM, should be a perf boost.

This will require a change to global events since there will jQuery.cache will no longer contain all data for all objects and jQuery.event.trigger can't sneak a peek into the cache to trigger them.

Need a feature detect I can use to determine whether it's safe to attach data to a DOM object.
