To me that says the interface still isn't stable enough to document. Compare 
and contrast with the extensive documentation for the JSON format a few 
paragraphs earlier. I may just have picked up the wrong emssage though - it 
wouldn't be the first time ;-)

Besides, my opinion of what it says now has nothing to do with why whoever 
decided to take the ogpsd route did so back then. If you really want to know 
then check the smartphone-standards archives.
