I prefer calling it Embedded to Server, because many servers
(including SLES and RHEL) support all of the graphical libraries, such
as for stateless clients.  It's a bit macabre, but I would prefer
calling it 3.2 Headless to 3.2 Server, which at least makes clear that
there's no windowing system.  Embedded and Mobile generally mean very
different things in the market today, so I would stick with Embedded,
as I don't believe there will be any confusion.
