Internet Explorer 10 is available worldwide in 95 languages for download today. We will begin auto updating Windows 7 customers to IE10 in the weeks ahead, starting today with customers running the IE10 Release Preview.

No need to save your VM's. MS has a page with IE6/7/8/9 loaded on an O/S encapsulated in a VM wrapper that times out in 180 days. Adding that app to block IE 10 installation is all you will need to do for your IE 9 VM's.

I'd rather keep a virtual machine (parallels - host OS not being windows) in sleep mode with the right native browser than trust parallel IE "integrated with the OS" installations and have a need to download the thing twice a year, risking they change something in the mean time.
Sleep/unsleep takes mere seconds and I'm very confident it's relevant to how a user on a brand new installation would see it.

"Won't that lead to disastrous consequences for affiliates who depend on cookies to track sales?"
No. Third-party cookies aren't needed to track affiliate sales. The cookie is set and read by the merchant's site when the visitor reaches it.
Third-party cookies are set and read, for example, by AdSense ads embedded in your site. With third-party cookies disabled, AdSense, and other ads served from a third-party, will have a harder time providing ads tailored to the visitor.
