This also means that it should be superior to MLAA especially in case where polygon edge is vertical or horizontal, in which case MLAA doesn't do a thing.

Most likely it should handle small polygons better as well, although it will be interesting to see a case of very thin lines where only every 5th pixel are actually shaded and the depth buffer tells clearly that the surface is there..
