I could see the new "Shiny" (in reality, they should be called specular 
highlights) breaking content that relied on the darkening properties of 
the classic Shiny shader.  Which is why I've modified the deferred shiny 
shader to "darken" the object's diffuse shading depending on the shiny 
value, without resorting to silly environment maps to make things "Shiny".
