While we are focussed in DDWG on the production of content for the Web,
we have considered the potential need in other domains and we aim to be
extensible to support other use cases. I would have no objection to
information on the periphery of the scope of DDWG being included in the
DDWG wiki, so long as we make it clear (i.e. on the page itself) that
this is a topic beyond our primary focus.

Such information may be of use to the wider community, and perhaps it
may encourage them to contribute to our core activity, which is
primarily concerned with supporting content adaptation through the
provision of device descriptions.

Subject: DeviceDescriptionStructuresUseCases Use cases

I was about to create a new use-case, but I think that this actually  
partially matches the already existing use-case 1.

I am proposing a change in the text and creation of 2 use-cases OR  
the integration.
The current use-case is focused on content adaptation for the mobile  
web and WAP. I was thinking of the ability to group devices according  
to other characteristics for example for game and application  
developers. Companies could be interested in grouping devices  
according to the supported JSR's or some hardware characteristics  
such as bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS, camera (did you see mobilized?) and so  

It is very similar to use-case one, the use of the grouping is again  
to produce a content that is suitable for a group of devices, the  
difference is that in the current test only the production of web  
pages is considered, while I'd like to extend the idea to other types  
of content such as mobile games, video, ringtones and so on.

We could restrict the existing use-case to web and create one that is  
for applications and games and another one for media contents in
