Windows 7: Internet Explorer 9 (IE9) Release Candidate (RC) on February 10, 2011

Hmm... I had either the beta or post beta installed and decided to try the leaked RC Escrow and was able to do so without uninstalling. I just ran the exe and it updated, which makes me think that a RC via WU is possible

Since I have been beta testing this has been the case. Last beta I had of IE9, I had to remove to install updated.
If things have changed with MS, that's news to me.
That's for sure! The only thing seen for any beta since the first updates for 7 is the prerec for the SP1 beta found in important updates. When IE 7 and later 8 were first in beta that was a separate item for them at the time.

You may install without uninstalling some newer versions but again, that is illadvised, but it won't come from WU until RTM.

Here I will simply download to save and then run the set up once the beta is gone. That insures no problems with any overwrite. I suspect the installer however will see it as an update if you don't remove the beta first while that would still be the better move.

I agree and also don't care. I will wait for Final as add-ons I need don't work.
I tried the Beta and it is a lot faster but need my add-ons.

Whoa, Marrrcus!
Do you have inside information the assertion on which you commented is incorrect? As far as your comment about "guessing," you have made an unfounded and erroneous observation.
Cool your jets, OK?
