ADT Layout Editor -- What do warning triangles mean?

 Is there an explanation of the ADT layout editor UI some place? I
can't find anything on the Android web site about it. When I look at a
layout in the design view, there are a number of fields at the top
with labels like MCC, MNC, Lang, etc. I've noticed that I can change
the contents of these fields, such as orientation, and it has an
effect on the view. But a yellow warning triangle appears next to the
field I've changed and the next time I open this view I see the
unmodified field. For example, if I change to landscape orientation
the view goes back to default next time. Is there documentation some
place on what these fields mean and how they are supposed to be used?

1. Anti-SMSishing discussio


As an academic project, I tackle the problem of SMSishing. SMSishing
can be defined in the same way as a phishing except that the
fraudulent link is sent by SMS.

The goal of the project is to create an awareness about SMSishing.
Many approaches might have been used. I'm working with the Google Safe
Browsing API in order to download on the mobile phone the list of the
(hashed) fraudulent addresses. Then I extract the http links in the
SMS inbox to compare them with the database created on the phone.

There is some disadvantages doing like that :
- we need an internet connection
- the list provided is LONG so it takes time to write the database and
make comparaisons

Other methods to fight SMSishing would be :
- the mobile operator checks the validity of each SMS before sending
it to its destination
- a Google Safe Browsing API which allow to send the address we want
to check and make the test online (it avoids heavy computations)
- the security level is implemented inside the mobile browser and not
in the SMS/MMS application

The code and more details about my project can be found here :

Other SMSishing related topic is Vishing : a fraudulent SMS asks you
to call a number you believe in (by example your bank) and most of the
time the called number will be an automatic voice responder asking you
personal informations (such as credit card number).
Both problems might be approach in the same way because we could store
a database of fraudulent number.

What do you think about these problems ? What would be the best
solution ? The most realistic implementation ? Should this problem be
handled by operators ? By the browser ? By the SMS application ?
