FWIW and slightly off topic I really dislike MediaWiki:Sidebar and
would prefer it doesn't make it's way into the mobile skin in any
form. I think using a wiki page to edit interface elements doesn't
lend itself well to a separation of concerns.

The fact is that almost every single MediaWiki out there has customized their sidebar using the only recommend method, editing MediaWiki:Sidebar. While MobileFrontend is not planning to follow this path, MediaWiki Core doesn't seem to have any plans to move away from MediaWiki:Sidebar. The result is that almost every single MediaWiki mobile instance offers an inconsistent experience to their users.

Not urgent, but important.

An early form of this bug can be found in
https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=30902 (but as stated
this menu is different from MediaWiki:Sidebar)

Thank you for this URL.
