The Flexible Box model styles are present in the element styles, however they fail to do anything.

This breaks feature detection, a best practice recommended by microsoft: 

feature tests: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/39519/temp/ie9test.html // tests succeed
test page: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/39519/temp/flexbox.html // styles fail

Thank you for your feedback.

Internet Explorer 9 RTM no longer reports these properties as available. Please verify the change and file a new feedback (or reactivate the existing one) if the problem persists.

Best regards,

The Internet Explorer Team

Here's another link with tests: http://hacks.mozilla.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/02/exemple-simple.html
and their description: http://hacks.mozilla.org/2010/04/the-css-3-flexible-box-model/

It would be absolutely awesome to see this feature supported in the final version of IE9.

This is probably because those properties will be supported in the next Beta ;-)
