Yes, it is. We can target to make a new API for PPS which would unify
advantages of all current implementations and approaches. Still the fact
remains that a few things work on bare QNX in a different way than on BB10
because the latter is a complete application platform and the former is
just a pure OS.

Does this mean considering QNX are a "core platform" and BB10 sitting on
top of it? This sounds sensible.
