Does it? 

We seem, in this conversation at least, to be considering only the web browsers as user-agents. That doesn't seem very diverse from here.

I would say that the ability to make the web open to technologies, whether current or future, beyond those supported in the major browsers is indeed (still) a TAG problem. Or at least, it certainly should be, if the W3C is in the business of supporting the whole web, and not just the browser web.
