Thanks! As you may have seen, I've just released a new version of that
document which includes your updates

Given that the time I can spend on this is funded for its mobile
orientation angle, I would rather its focus as is; now, if there is a
way to extract a mobile oriented from a more generic document, I would
be more than happy to contribute to the generic document.

If someone creates such a generic document with enough hooks for me to
extract the mobile-focused document, I'm also fine with producing the
tool that does the extraction.

But I probably wouldn't have the cycles to migrate the current
mobile-focused document into a more generic one with the proper hooks.

HTH,

Dom
