Hi Terren,
The CT Guidelines ensure that any mobile-aware content provider can have
*total control* over whether transcoding is used or not on content, by
the use of standard HTTP features: See "4.2.2 Server Origination of
Cache-Control: no-transform".

Best regards,
Bryan Sullivan | AT&T

As the technical lead for SingleClick Systems mobile development, I'm
writing to protest the W3C's failure to provide a clear rule against the
modification of the User-Agent header.

As mobile developers, my team spends a lot of time creating the mobile
experience *we* want our users to see. If our users are subjected to the
confusing experience of transcoding, we lose money.

I urge the W3C to adopt the standards set forth by Luca Passani's
Manifesto, of which I'm sure you're aware.
