From a BISG Announcement:

To help content creators and executives make decisions in the rapidly evolving world of digital publishing — with its myriad devices and reading systems — BISG, through its Content Structure Committee has developed the EPUB 3.0 Support Grid.

The Grid is designed to be a handy reference to what enhancements and features of the recently released EPUB 3.0 are usable on which device, app, and reading system. The Grid was created and filled in by industry experts representing leading publishers, service providers, and technology vendors.
