+Modules outside the core should leverage the benefits and address the
+programming challenges of such a scheduler. They shouldn't demand that users do
+the same.  They should, however, allow users to manage power through different
+modes and functions.
+
+#### Small memory footprint
+
+Most of RIOT's targeted use cases are well addressed by devices in class 1 of
+the taxonomy presented in [1]. If small price differences are important or the
+energy budget is particularly tight, the available memory might be near the
+bottom of this class. Over-the-air updating currently reduces the available ROM
+by over half.
+
+RIOT should provide out-of-the-box support for devices with ~10 KiB of
+available RAM and ~100 KiB of ROM. It should be just as possible to address

The sentiment that I've picked up is that this is a real discussion - for example, people have cited the comments of one of the speakers at the last Summit that our key differentiator is that we have a slimmer memory footprint than the competition and that we should continue to strengthen that aspect. That to me is not at all artificial (if I understand correctly what you meant by the word).  

Re the language - to make it more tight - perhaps "with manual optimizations and specialized modules" -> "via configuration and modules that prioritize memory efficiency in their design, without of course departing from specifications". And delete the last sentence.
