If that is the case, then I think that this should be extended to the  
existing use-case 2 which is more of a "marketing" grouping of  
devices rather than for the mobile web.

Since the group is not going to actually define any families, but  
simply defining the API's by which an "extended-DDR" can manage  
device grouping, I don't see the need to say which use-cases are out  
of scope. As long as the DDR supports the basic API's and the  
"extended-DDR" supported the extra API's we will define, I don't see  
any borders to the groupings that different individuals might create.

I also apologies for an e-mail I sent out that was apparently  
encrypted with GPG. All I wanted to provide was a link to the page of  
the use cases, which I'll send now, http://www.w3.org/2005/MWI/DDWG/
