I've checked in the most recent changes to the draft above into the 
html-device draft mentioned here:

   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2009Dec/0355.html

...that is:

   http://dev.w3.org/html5/html-device/

(At the time of my e-mail to wai-tech the most recent edits hadn't been 
checked into the W3C copy, which is why I hadn't mentioned it earlier.)
