The demo allready have the final render code.

I am not absolute sure why the dropped SM2 support. But after I am doing the technical analyse as part of my job I have a suspicion. I looks like that ubi shrinks from the additional work that a port to SM2 would cause. Unfortunately the SM3 shader are real SM3 shader and can not simply compile to a SM2 target.
