From sales point of view, there's no point of doing this unless when DX9 is really obsolete or if Microsoft would subsidize your game.

If you're the developer/studio, would you rather sell your game to ~8% of the target gaming market, or 80%. (According to Steam Hardware Survey, 82.97% of the users still use WinXP, and only 8.16% of users use Vista with a DX10 card).
