I'd remove it from the talking points.  It's OK for other material to
reference it, just like we can continue to reference the Moblin Spin
even if its content may be a little in flux. The announcement text
refers to the new user account dialog work as "experimental" which is
accurate -- it's a WiP.  As for Moblin, the Spin is still something
approved even if there's no "Moblin 2.2" per se.  We can still
reference it and refer to the current content as paving the way for a
MeeGo based spin, I would think.
