The UC Berkeley paper "Privacy Issues of the W3C Geolocation API" is  
an interesting read and highly  relevant to both the Geolocation WG  
and the DAP working group. It mentions DAP explicitly. Thanks to  
Professor Mulligan for bringing this to my attention.

I'll send a separate message with some proposed requirements text  
derived from this read for our draft document, "Device API Security,  
Privacy and Policy Requirements" [1].

Personally, I find it  interesting that one of the findings is that  
web sites generally have been doing a poor job of providing users  
notice, policy and inspection related to location privacy.

regards, Frederick
