You're completely correct, and so the mobile render would be quite plain.
Feeds are really the right model for mobile blog reading, so this aspect
would represent a fairly small amount of work...just enough so that phones
with simple browsers (but that can't accommodate an feed reader for any
reason) can browse to sites and get something useful (albeit not pretty)
with as small a payload as possible.

Absolutely, and presumably any plug-ins and widgets done as part of this
project could be useful in other themes.

To Robin and Dave, obviously I'm a K2 fan, and I participated in earlier
betas.  I won't be reinventing any wheels that I don't have to, but this
project will target a very different class of users.
