I've had a short email conversation  with Adam on this set of issues
and agree with him "about these becoming advisory/appendix materials"

I agree w François that
these are better placed as "strong advisory notes"...
the obvious implementations of this which I have found
are actually in Web-focused apps 
and are about sending personal data
rather than in browser-based settings 
which are doing generic network access
