All looks rosy until you get to the bit about requiring the Khronos graphics 
APIs. If you look at the draft spec you'll see they don't currently support 
our old ARM architecture, and I guess they're unlikely to add it. Then again 
they haven't defined the requirements for the handset profile yet.

I could be being overly negative though, so feel free to ask over on the 
meego-porting list mentioned in the guide. We already have bootloader, kernel 
and drivers, and working X. We already use connman, and iirc someone added 
Calypso support to ofono for the FR already. If it wasn't for the graphics it 
should be a 'simple' matter of writing the required configs and setting the 
build system going ;-)
