sections 1.4.2 and 1.4.3

so don't hit me if I am having 2nd thoughts
about removing some of the "what do we mean by" text
[which I think is part of what we agreed yesterday to do]...

I think it is important to say something about
what is meant by a "Web Application"
and then to say something about
what is different about the mobile context

as of the 21st
section 1.4.1 opened with the paragraph:

   For the purposes of this document, the term "web application"
   refers to a web page (XHTML or a variant thereof + CSS) or
   collection of web pages delivered over HTTP which use either
   server-side or client-side processing (e.g. javascript) to provide
   an "application-like" experience within a web-browser. Web
   applications are distinct from simple web content (the focus of BP1)
   in that they include some elements of interactivity and persistent  

and section 1.4.2 has the statement:

   [...] the focus of this document is to address those aspects of
   web-application development for which there are additional,
   non-trivial concerns associated with the mobile context.

I think something that makes clear
what is meant by a "Web Application"
and what is special about them in a mobile context
is important for this BP document

what was there may indeed have been "too wordy"
and I think *something* addressing these issues
needs to be in the BP document

am I missing something in my insufficient-coffee state?

just my [ever-shrinking] $0.02 worth

“If the state is endowed with
  the power to enforce virtue,
  the men who hold that power
  will enforce their own concepts
  as virtuous.”
