I don't think I am clear exactly what your point is.

Are you saying that experiences that take advantage of higher device capabilities are not necessarily non mobileOK? Surely, if the higher tier experiences are mobileOK they'd also be provided to the lower-tier devices?

Perhaps this might be a cause of misunderstanding though, and would it be better if we said:

It is expected that content providers, as well as targetting DDC level devices, will wish also to provide experiences that are not necessarily mobileOK for more advanced mobile devices.

?
