Reading 8x50-floppies with 1.2 MB-drive?

Hallo allemaal,

Last weekend I was explaining somebody that it is impossible to read
4040/1541-floppies with an 8x50-drive. During this conversation I wondered
how the data is stored: GCR or MFM? 

AFAIK in GCR-mode. If so, why wouldn't it be possible to read 1541-floppies
in this drive or 8x50-floppies in a 1571 in 2 MHz mode?

If it is MFM then why not using an IBM 1.2 MB-drive?
