As far as I see this is a open source project, so nobody stops anybody
else from telling any magazine so feel free to write an exposee and send
it to them.

I guess this you have to ask the guys writing programs for consoles.

I guess this heavily depends -- if you take e.g. a PS3 and install linux
I give you a good chance that it will be possible to run inkscape on it.
But if you take a wii I don't know if there's any good painting
programme out there.

Correct, but as I don't know if there are any preferred, maybe even
proprietary used e.g. on the iphone, the technically closest solution
might be SVG mobile=SVG Tiny and SVG Basic, if you want feel free to
find out how much of the SVGs on stock do actually use features not
covered by SVG Tiny or SVG Basic.

My personal priorities regarding openclipart are really more on the PCs
and Macs (and all other natively SVG compatible plattforms) than Mobile
devices and Consoles. I invested three weeks in a release and it was a
very nice experience but I will soon have to leave to earn my living. If
I returned I would potentially investigate on thumbnails on the web page.

I would define a plan as a theoretical construct of future action. The
problem is when there will be no action because nobody invests the
effort and you don't have developers or money or manpower your plan
sounds more like a dream -- which you can make true only if you somehow
get the action, either by doing it yourself or having somebody do it.

Live your dream. Actually I do. It feels great :-).
