ah, makes sense in conjunction with what Kevin said.

Actually, the WAP theme was intended for WAP phones, and if I recall, 
was developed using a WAP emulator..   my guess is that the emulator 
supported more than just WML, though.

Neither the WAP theme or the compact theme are actively maintained, so I 
may remove them at some point soon for compatibility reasons, anyway...

so it should replace WAP, but not overwrite it.
