If we're to have any explicit exceptions, I'll put a vote in for their  
being more specific. IIRC we've already removed language from CTG  
which referenced terms like "usable" because it wasn't felt to be  
testable, and therefore left room for ambiguity.

As they stand, I think they would permit any proxy to transcode mobile  
content. After all, would anyone deploy a transcoder with the  
intention of doing anything other than improving the user experience?
