Agreed. I just think it would be useful to mention the term, but no
more. How about ""It attempts to provide the technical information
needed for building the business case..."

The section "How People with Disabilities Use Mobile Devices for Web
Access" (until now devoid of content) may do just that, and perhaps it
would be better put in another document. The EOWG maintains a similar
document for general Web use, which could be expanded (and finished!)
and linked from this one.
