Egor,
maybe we are thinking of different things. If there is something for a  
little child, say a picture to be coloured with pencils, we say the  
target (audience) is the child but it needs a mediator to make it  
accessible (print it) for the child whereas, if it is a good idea for  
an adult working with a child, we say the target (audience) is the  
adult and the subject is 'working with a child'.

Is this how you understand it?
