Policy requirements question (was Re: RE: [Powerbox] New draft based on further collaboration and prototyping)

Does http://dev.w3.org/2009/dap/policy-reqs/ suggest that an application
should request microphone access once, upon installation or invocation, and
from that point on would be able to record and transmit audio with no way
contemplated for the user to monitor its microphone or network access, or
revoke the permission, say if the company controlling the application
changes hands or changes its privacy policy?

Am I reading that correctly?

It would be nice to improve upon current practice, especially in the area of
security.

Hi Robin and Tyler,

Another important point that we discussed before when powerbox first
came up was to ensure that we can cover-off some of the basic abuse
cases (as outlined here:
http://dev.w3.org/2009/dap/policy-reqs/#abuse-cases ).

Would it be possible to show how powerbox can handle those?

Thanks,


David.
