Here and in multiple places it says "desktop", but we have seen design
decisions and code changes made on the idea of running on tablets, and
sometimes the desktop usecase seemed secondary.

An example would be the new lock screen with "swipe to unlock", it
took some emails to make sure pressing a key would also work, and it
may still be less convenient for mouse users.

How do we take this trend in consideration, when defining what is
