I'd recommend doing this across devices even if the devices portion is somewhat light.
A lot of the web stuff affects tablets (Retina display) and should be considered in parallel.

Second: Grids merit their own section, I promise you that there will be enough to put in there.

       We've been talking about grids/restricted viewports lately.  The current expected interface model is that the page expands as large as the browser window. Changing this will require hard data.

       I'm on board with this, and I think it's the right thing to do.  Especially having been working on Flow all day (this is something that will just be absolute *ass* with full window stretching).

       So, that said, here's what we need:

               Supporting documentation and research.

       This is going to be something that is going to come up at Wikimania.  So I'd like to have a nice, fat list of references for this.  Those of you who are just out of school and/or have masters degrees in this sort of thing - I'm looking at you.  I'd love to have a page of talking points.

       Let's say we have a week to pull this together, so it can be incorporated into slide decks and other documents and such.

       Who is willing to spearhead this?
