I would go with the 4 points you mentioned:

  * end-user applications
  * a "classic" UNIX desktop
  * an SDK (currently mainly KF5)
  * a user interface for mobile/embedded Linux systems (currently Plasma

Two suggestions:
How about combining the two points "classic unix desktop" and
"mobile/embedded", to clarify the team working "on the desktop" is
really sharing ~80% of the code via one base (plasma) and people could
use that plasma even in tv, car or aviation systems:
* a modern (unix) shell, that targets the classic desktop and can
converge towards mobile/embedded [somewhat like unity / android /

Also let's mention "end-user webservices" to be included, as subpoint
under "end-user applications" (owncloud or wiki2learn), then this
mission imo would still very focused and clear with our goals laid out
in our vision.

Greetings, Clemens.
