David,

Thanks for the comments.

1.  Interesting point about the name.  I think Web Tools for Mobile is accurate for what it is.  If I consider your three names.  The tools aren't mobile - they're tools for using web languages to develop apps for mobile devices.  They enable app creation, but that isn't what it is.  Something like  "Development Tools for Mobile Web" is a possibility, but maybe too long?  

Do others have thoughts about this?

2. Web Runtime itself isn't part of the proposal.  The proposal just includes Web Runtime bindings so that WRT can be used as a reference implementation.   A near term roadmap item for the project would be to add support for open source runtimes like phonegap, bondi, and webkit.

Best regards,
Paul

Want some comments from "the general public" yet?

1) I sure wish you could think of a name that doesn't start with "Web Tools" .... sounds easy to confuse with "Web Tools Platform" (often referred to as "Web Tools" for short).

I myself am terrible of thinking of good names ... but "Mobile Tools for Web"? "Web Apps for Mobile"?  "Development Tools for Mobile Web"?

2) Just by its name, sounds like the "Web Runtime" could go in the Rt project?

I hope you find these comments useful,
