1) The implementers have informed us that the desktop and mobile
  code bases are the same and therefore testing on desktop
  should suffice (and should also be easier as far as user

2) At this time we do not have any volunteers to test on mobile
  explicitly and produce an implementation report. We welcome
  volunteers, so contact us if you are interested.

As a result, we plan to replace a sentence in the current editors'
drafts with text that more closely aligns with the usual W3C expectations 
about CR exit criteria:

"The working group will demonstrate implementation experience by
 producing an implementation report. The report will show two or more
 independent implementations passing each mandatory test in the test
 suite (i.e., each test corresponds to a MUST requirement of the
