I'll throw it into the mix because I consider myself a pretty average Web developer so hopefully the site is representative of what "average web devs" are doing - it's hand made (+some libs like jQuery, Modenizr, etc.). And the budget and time constraints and visitor data (tracked through Google Analytics) I talk about is real - though I won't share any numbers.

Sorry about the confusion. The site I pointed to  is only used as an example of a "mobile/desktop" site, but I did not want to draw any attention to the content of the site itself (specially not the WAC APIs or Widgets!). Hence, widgets have little or no place in this discussion (but I am happy to chat about them off list if you would like). Having said that, widget developers may have their own set of gripes about developing for mobile devices (irrespective of the WAC APIs or widgets). 

I've personally have not received any feedback from Web developers using the WAC runtimes in Asia - nor know if any such data has been collected by WAC ( In the interest of full disclosure, I merely contract for WAC as a spec editor and Web Monkey, so I don't have any insight beyond that).
