Generally, the existing special pages should _work_ on a small screen but
some of them will be horribly ugly like watchlist, recentchanges, history
view, etc.

We're starting to do small-screen-focused versions of some special pages in
the MobileFrontend extension, which provides a distinct mobile view rather
than a general responsive design. This may or may not be helpful to you. :)
