We will continue to support mobile devices with the web client, but we
won't try to achieve that "native" user experience anymore. Thats what
RAP mobile  is for. In a nutshell, we will fix critical bugs, but not
do any mobile-specific enhancements. Known limitations/quirks (like
missing context menu support, scrolling in android) are not considered
critical. They *might* get fixed at some point, but have a low priority
now, and we have comparatively limited resources.

We are aware, but there is no bugzilla entry for that specifically. It
is something that might get fixed if its easy to do, i.e. the code from
iOs can be used as-is for android.

It might be possible, but we also do not consider it a bug.
If someone contributes a solid patch (meeting all coding standards of
the RAP project) for any of these issues to bugzilla, we would likely
apply it, unless it bloats the code too much.
I hope these answers helps you a bit.
