Thanks for creating this Dom (FYI, I made some edits and updates yesterday).

Re the overall positioning and scope of the document, it seems like the 
document would be more useful if it was positioned more generally as a 
survey of "Standards for Web Applications". The definition of mobile, in 
the context of devices, changes rapidly and it wasn't so long ago that 
mobile devices meant monochrome phones running a WAP stack. If any of 
the specs used for Web applications have particularly relevant mobile 
characteristics/constraints, that could be documented in a new 
"Mobile/Mobility" column.
