Working Group Resolution:
Under what it means, it says:

"While encouraging content providers to be sensitive to the needs of the
default delivery context, it is not intended that this results in a
diminished experience on more capable devices. Specifically it is not the
intention to encourage the development of sites that target the default
delivery context when a better user experience could be attained on more
capable devices."

which makes it clear that baseline devices should not be forgotten.
