Was good meeting you at Agile 08. I've been familiar with the principles since starting work in Agile environments about a year and a half ago - they weren't something I was unaware of or didn't see. We actually had them posted throughout the office when my last company made the switch.
To answer your question, no. After reading the principles I didn't feel any differently about the lack of UX practice in Agile.
IMO, Jeff Patton did a good job of presenting the reason behind the exclusion of UX in his latest article:
"In the lower left of my simple 4 quadrant model I place software built
internally for use by an organization where usage is mandatory for its
target users. I explained that this is where Agile processes originated
from. I also explained that strong user experience practice rarely
exists here.... But, given this starting context where user experience practice
isn't well understood, no one should be surprised that user experience
practice isn't well understood in Agile development - at least not out
of the box."http://agileproductdesign.com/blog/emerging_best_agile_ux_practice.html

Excellent question. My suspicion is no, not without similar hackery,
but I'm still thinking. In the meantime, let me ask a question of
self-identified UX/ID/UI/HCI people:
Do those who feel that the Agile Manifesto doesn't make enough room for
them and their work feel differently if they read the principles?
