It shouldn't be. But it is mostly too high-level to be a useful way of  
understanding what was chosen. There should be some more operational  
information like "this is for making Angry Birds work" or "these things  
were agreed upon by the group" or "this is the one without the gannet" or  
whatever process was used, as well as the high-falutin' principles by  
which we are all guided...

Specifically "the intersection of what is available in the most popular  
mobile platforms" is at best somewhat misleading as it relates to what  
seems to have actually happened. If you chose "Safari and Android" as it  
seems you did, it should say so. I've written elsewhere why I think that  
is a bad choice, but the most important idea is that the document  
accurately reflect whatever it purports to present.

For the moment I'll keep my hands clean ;)

Oh, no I won't, but I'd rather comment in this thread for the editors to  
follow up on outcomes of discussions - or is your preferred mode to fight  
with forks?

cheers
