Hi everyone,
Per ACTION-3, we need to define app types that we're targeting in each level (https://www.w3.org/community/coremob/track/actions/3).
As a result, I've uploaded the bulk of our research at http://www.mattkel.ly/coremob/mobile_web_app_profile.xls.  This contains nearly the top 100 mobile apps on Android and iOS as of late last year.  These results encompass what we've based Level 0, 1, and 2 (and Ringmark Ring 0, 1, and 2) on, primarily.  This data is always changing, but we've gone through this exercise repeatedly over the past 6 months and have always turned up with very similar results.  Ie, 2D games, audio/video apps, and camera apps have nearly always dominated.  Therefore, that's the basis for Level 1.
While it's not my intention to reignite the discussion for Level 0, I've gone a step further and also included our research as to what's currently supported in iOS Safari and the Android Browser.  This includes nearly 200 features.  We hope that this data will give developers a very granular picture of what's supported on mobile today, as well as help sites like mobilehtml5.org and caniuse.com.

Feedback is always welcome.
