Where is Group Policy Preference for Internet Explorer 11 ?

After joining the Windows 8.1 enterprise into domain environment, I was expecting that GPMC will introduce new GPP template for Internet Explorer 11, but the latest version was still the Internet Explorer 10.
So, how to apply settings to Internet Explorer 11 via GPP ?
Fortunately, GPP for Internet Explorer 10 will also work with Internet Explorer 11. Why ?
I opened GPP for IE10 xml file, and saw that file version filtering for iexplore is between 10 and 99.
Here is the filtering part from the xml file:
path="%ProgramFilesDir%\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" type="VERSION" gte="1" min="10.0.0.0" max="99.0.0.0"
My opinion is that with this kind of file filter versioning for iexplore, the GPP template should be named Internet Explorer 10 and higher, not just Internet Explorer 10.
