 From a global POV, I agree with you.

But how can we explain the difference for the first Webapp launch ? From 
what I can see, libewebkit2 weights 1.3GB and this has clearly an impact 
on WRT launchpad reactivity.

I don't say that stripping the binaries is the ultimate solution to 
speed-up app launch. I only report that there's some impact. Also note 
that linux distros usually strip their binaries before shipping and I 
don't see why Tizen would be an exception.

Partial stripping could be a good compromise.
