I appreciate the perspective, Marcos. But I differ and I think that what WebMob "can do" will be determined by how the group overall responds to the proposals I have made. Setting up a task force under WebMob to move this forward may be the first step, as recently suggested by Jeff to me.

I tend to agree. 

The only thing I see Web Mob maybe helping with is making sure that the tests can be run on mobile devices. It might be small things like requesting that the test runners include <meta viewport> and that things can be clicked/activated on a phone. 

Apart from that, there is probably not much more we can do.
