Hi,

Per my ACTION-225, I started jotting down some of the questions we need
to ask ourselves across our APIs in terms of security and privacy
considerations:
http://www.w3.org/2009/dap/wiki/ApiCheckList#Privacy_.26_Security_Considerations

This is inspired from some of the discussions we've had this week, in
particular on the Systems and Info API, and the Contacts API.

I'm afraid the current questions are a bit messy, and are by no mean
exhaustive; comments and modifications (this is a wiki) are more than
welcome.

The goal is to help API editors to check that they cover enough points
in their respective specifications.
