But the document already mentions it, e.g.:
"In the Web browser environment, this permission is usually granted
through explicit user’s consent, and is retained for later access in the
same session."
http://dev.w3.org/2009/dap/api-perms/#geolocation

"In the Web browser environment, this permission is usually granted
implicitly by asking the user to select what data of which contacts
should be shared, for each call to the said method."
http://dev.w3.org/2009/dap/api-perms/#contact

So, I'm not sure what further change would be needed to take this into
account.
