I suspect it will.  However, note that the target user base is majoritarily
NOT running IE (only 2/7 users do).

Anyway, since later the installer has to ask about proxy, I suppose it doesn't
harm to "move" the proxy question by asking it in win32-loader and then
preseed it (preseeding support is now implemented, look at how hostname/domain
or timezone is done).
