It seems all my direct and indirect contacts at Microsoft are not responding
to me anymore. I'm not very hopeful this will get addressed by them.

A workaround might be possible, but it depends on the nature of their bug. If
they just send us the wrong proposal, but do it right anyway, they we might
be able to workaround it and ignoring theirs and doing ours. But if they
actually install the reverse IPsec SA's, then we cannot work around it (though
then we can tempt them into giving us traffic, which would at
least make it front page news and then they might spend the time to fix it)
