OLPC and Microsoft punt Windows-only XO laptop

Brett

punt?

I formally object to this headline:

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/punt gives an informal definition: From Google's cache:

to cease doing something; give up: "Let's punt on this and do something else"

From the live page:

to equivocate or delay: "If they ask you for exact sales figures, you'll have to punt"

Is there a dictionary that supports this usage?
