Bryan: there is a scope section which does define, based on November talks, a web application
16:15:45 [Kai]
I like it
16:15:57 [Bryan]
BP2 extends the focus to Web applications generally, which means an application that is accessed and presented via Web technologies.
16:16:01 [srowen]
I think it can be sharpened to mention HTTP, an (X)HTML
16:16:42 [DKA]
PROPOSED RESOLUTION: A "Mobile Web Application" shall be defined as an application that runs inside the browser on a mobile device. Such applications often make use of scripting, CSS, and Dom manipulation.

Agree, don't care whether we're talking about user agents based on MIDP or Symbian or ham sandwiches. But we seem to be talking about HTML/CSS/HTTP user agents, so let's say that much. Don't say "browser" if you don't want, I agree that is not necessary.

Final remark: let's start by listing out best practices. I posted 5-6 to the list. At the end of the day, if we find that the real, good practices we can mention concern only HTTP/HTML/etc. then we can comfortably state that *that* is what we are talking about. Sure, let's not decide that a priori if that is unpalatable.
16:32:19 [francois]
