The class of machines for which this option does not apply is
"machines with an existing operating system in mask rom and no
flash", which AFAICT is equivalent to "WindowsCE machines
". The
class "handheld devices" is too broad as it includes machines
like the Rockwell DMIDA which is handheld but has flash. So
this seems to me to be a reasonably good choice of words.

Having said that, I agree that the help text entries for the SH
port are in general of less than stellar quality, for various
(mostly good) reasons. I'm hoping ESR will give us some editorial
feedback which will provide a good excuse to fix them.

These are my opinions not PPIs.
