Dear Florian,

Telefonica's paper is a vision of the future regarding device 
description.  This is how in Telefonica envision the device description 
space. The different points addressed in my paper are going to be 
resolved incrementally under the standardization efforts performed both 
at W3C and at OMA.

In the W3C, the DDWG is working now in the definition of the charter 2. 
In that charter (that hopefully will start on November) the group will 
be in charge, basically, of defining the repository APIs and the top N 
capabilities that allow a minimal content adaptation solution.

We expect that first implementations of DDRs compliant with the W3C APIs 
will appear soon, hopefully next year. WURFL community [1] and 
MyMobileWeb community [2] are very commited to perform the 
implementation of the APIs and the integration of open source content 
adaptation systems with the standard DDR.

If you want to keep in touch with this apassionate initiative, please 
subscribe to the DDWG public mailing list.

Best Regards
