Draft Proposed Answer to Ian Hickson: Avoiding device-dependent p rofiles

Original comment (issue 1045 [1])



Thank you for your comment, which the QA Working Group has accepted in
principle but believe that the current wording discourages variability and
that it isn't appropriate to get into technical details as to what is good
or bad variability, but rather should be carefully evaluated by each Working
Groups (as expressed by 'when warranted'). [2]



"Good Practice 13: Create subdivisions of the technology when warranted.

What does it mean? It may make sense to subdivide the technology into
related groups of functionality to target specific constituencies, address
specific capabilities or hardware considerations, provide for incremental
implementation, facilitate usability, etc.,.."
