Mobile-specific tools in Infusion?

I really like this idea of a demo page.

For one it would really help with manually testing the release  
bundles, as we won't have to hunt through the directory structure to  
find the test pages.

This is also the benefit it would provide our users who are looking  
for demo page to try.
