+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

@miri64 right: @kaspar030 did not state this sentence. My quote was from the original writing - it is the sentence I proposed to cut out. 
Again, I'm not arguing that using RIOT on small devices is not possible. IMO it is important to be precise here so not to raise the impression that RIOT (including all prominent features) is a thing that can run usually on 2 kB RAM.
