Support for IE6 isn't feasible in this format?

In the section "Image Sprites" of this doc(http://code.google.com/
webtoolkit/doc/latest/DevGuideClientBundle.html#ImageResource
), Google
says:

=============================

Support for IE6 isn't feasible in this format, because structural
changes to the DOM are necessary to implement a "windowing" effect.
Once it's possible to distinguish ie6 and ie7 in user.agent, we could
revisit support for ie6. In the current implementation, the ie6 code
won't render correctly, although is a purely cosmetic issue.

=============================

How do i understand why IE6 couldn't be supported? Does IE itself not
support CSS sprite? Does this mean I won't benefit from GWT's image
sprite feature if I want my application to run well on IE6?
Any reply will be appreciated.
