I did take a look at these a while ago though I will check again now that
our scope has become more focussed. For the most part, things in yahoo that
have been omitted are either very device specific (e.g. iPhone 25K limit, is
iPhone specific not even webkit and was true for first release but it's not
clear to me that it still applies to the later releases) or more technical /
low-level than feels appropriate for MWABP.
