Indeed, our documentation team has to update that but I believe this is
on their todo list.

I think Firefox OS should be added as another implementations (like
Firefox Mobile, Android browser or Chrome Mobile). I would see
specifications from SysApps as other items in the report. If we want to
push the Web as a Platform, I do not believe it would be a good idea to
do a strong distinction between SysApps and the rest. Maybe adding a
simple disclaimer before the SysApps section saying that those specs are
meant to be implemented outside of the browser scope would be fair though.
