Whilst I understand that this draft reflects the resolutions taken at 
TPAC, I would like to propose an addition to the document that at least 
points to the option to make the mobileOK claim machine-readable as follows.

2. Further Steps
As the previous section makes clear, the mobileOK trustmark is an icon 
that may be included on any Web page that conforms to mobileOK Basic 
Tests. However, it is possible to go further and make the claim 
machine-readable using any of a number of different methods, thus making 
mobileOK content more readily discoverable. The Protocol for Web 
Description Resources [@@POWDER] includes an example of how to do this 
in its documentation and alternatives include RDFa and microformats (@@ 
link to Jonathanís work on this)

updated w/c 10 November, see it now at
