I've emitted the -13 version of the overview.
Important changes:

- Devices are now "non-browsers"
- Since it makes no sense to talk about "a browser is a non-browser",
I've used the word "endpoint" for the thing that one can place
requirements on that apply to both browsers and non-browsers.
- Some words about non-browsers with APIs were added.

And more importantly:

- -video is now referenced for video codecs.

There is now a github repo for -overview, in case anyone wants to look
