I would suggest that a far better approach would be to suggest that the 
including IE5.5 in that list is in direct violation of best-practice 
standards within the security industry (citation to the appropriate CERT 
advisory someone?), and to require users to voilate basic security 
principles or surrender their right to claim against the bank for 
security failures is a fragrant abuse of the banks position of power in 
the relationship.

Or something along those lines.
