MSE is Microsoft's way of showing that it is "doing something" to avoid being tagged a risk, like banks implement the absolute minimum security they can get away with to mitigate liability (which is far from enough to protect their customers, but they're not interested in that - that's just excessive spend).

MSE is the sticker on your bumper that says "if you can read this you're too close". It leaves it up to the rest of the industry to mount airbags and ABS. Sometimes MS doesn't even bother to fit the brakes.
