What about a transparent PNG overlay for IE?

I created my own gist replicating your masking effect with just CSS ( no svg component): Seems to work well in most recent versions of FF, Chrome, and Safari.

I used background-gradients and a pseudo element to create your masking component, possibly using an IE filter for gradients it might be possible to to get a masking effect similar to yours in IE8, I am unsure of whether or not you can use rgba colors in this filter (most likely not)?? Alternatively, we can target the selector conditionally in IE8 and use the opacity property inside the pseudo element??
