[theme-reviewers] Theme requirements for adaptive vs. responsive themes

It certainly could be a plugin - and maybe I'll just put one together - I
have all the pieces just sitting there to do it in a very short time. I
think it could even include the ability to load or not load specific
scripts based on the device. Could indeed be very nice and add adaptive
elements to any responsive theme.

But I was just trying to use that shortcode as an example. It just seems
that a very large part of an mobile-adaptive theme vs. a mobile-responsive
theme involves deciding on how to rearrange and hide/show specific content.
I would assume a site designer who picked an adaptive theme over a
responsive time just might want more control, via the theme, of just what
specific content is or is not displayed, and that capability could be and
integral part of an adaptive theme (probably in much more clever ways than
my own theme allows). I think it would be good to allow a little more
flexibility specifically for creative adaptive themes designs in the way
they select the content to be displayed.
