However, the Zune HD has only 128MB of RAM. It's already RAM starved. That's why it's running a stripped down version of IE6 Mobile (yup, it's not even as capable as what's on WP6.5).

It cannot be technically done. It won't be done.
256 MB is the minimum requirement for WP7. This is the time I wish the Zune had more RAM. Also not all WP7 devices has 512 MB. Some have 256, others 448(like some HTC phones) others have 512(Focus and others) and I believe a coupe has 576.
