Further to our discussion today I came across this web app running on an 
iPod touch - the first image (86) is in its normal operation mode and 
the other two (87 and 88) are in what it calls "Car Mode".  There are 
two points here:

1. With the present state of affairs one has to go into its settings
for that app and select Car Mode to get the simple interface.  If a user 
has a simplePresentation preference set to true and the web app is able 
to know that it could enter this mode without need for explicit 
preference setting.  One might even envisage a device detecting that it 
was being used by a driver operating a vehicle and the device itself 
setting it to true and alerting the web app to that change.

2. That a preference is set (either by the device or by the user at the 
user interface) does not mean that a web app must respond to that 
preference - merely that it could.  Without any knowledge of the 
preference then nothing is possible at all.
