...So they're not actually quality, they're patterns.
The "quality" setting lets you select from various MSAA modes that are specific to the hardware. They don't necessarily correspond to "higher quality". The most common example would probably be Nvidia's CSAA modes, which are selected via the quality setting. D3D10.1 also added standard MSAA sample patterns, which you access by specifying D3D10_STANDARD_MULTISAMPLE_PATTERN or D3D10_CENTER_MULTISAMPLE_PATTERN as the quality level.
