The "Protecting Consumer Privacy" framework report is available:

  http://www.ftc.gov/os/2010/12/101201privacyreport.pdf

They ask a lot of questions (and looking for feedback) on pages 94 to 99, such as:

- Are there reliable methods for determining whether a particular data set is “linkable” or may become “linkable”?
- What technical measures exist to “anonymize” data and are any industry norms emerging in this area?

And for "do not track":
- How can such a mechanism be offered to consumers and publicized?
- How can such a mechanism be designed to be clear, easy-to-find, usable, and understandable to consumers?

Perhaps the authors should be invited to: http://www.iab.org/about/workshops/privacy/

Cheers
