I also promised to give this some more thought so let me do so before I 
turn to other matters this morning.

Current name: Addendum to Mobile Web Best Practices

Suggested alternatives:

1 Extended Evaluations for Mobile Web Best Practices
2 Supplement to Mobile Web Best Practices
3 Clarification of Mobile Web Best Practices
4 Companion to Mobile Web Best Practices
5 Extended Evaluations and Interpretation of Mobile Web Best Practices
6 Mobile Web Best Practices: Beyond mobileOK Basic Tests

I like Jo's suggestion (1) however I think it deserves the addition of 
'interpretation' as well (5). I am aware that this makes the title far 
from snappy however it does more fully reflect the document's content 
since, well, we do interpret some of the BPs, especially where they are 
applied to more than one URI.

2 - 4 are there to provide something snappy.

6 is also meant to be more snappy and hint at progression from mobileOK 
(which has always been the motivation for doing this in the first place).
