I'm hearing that several companies like Facebook, Google, Plaxo and LinkedIn have joined the DataPortability Association. The group's mission statement: To put all existing technologies and initiatives in context to create a reference design for end-to-end Data Portability. To promote that design to the developer, vendor and end-user community.

I think that this is one of the excellent industry initiatives but it isn't clear (to me, even after reading a few posts on the group's forum on Google) how mobile community platforms providers are involved.

Can the mobile communities tap the same architecture?
Has anyone in the mobile community joined or seriously examined the DataPortability group's proposal?
