SharePoint and wWWHomePage property

SharePoint has the user profile property "Public Site Redirect" which gets the value imported from the wWWHomePage in Active Directory. This property is set when user selects the default my site.

When user creates/visits his my site he gets a popup message asking to save the current site as default my site. On clicking yes, this is updated in the registry and wWWHomePage field in AD. This works only if the user is using the Office 2007 and below. For users having Office 2010 it doesn't work. Office 2010 updates the registry but not AD. Microsoft has dropped this feature in Office 2010.
