We also had a W3C Workshop on Privacy for Advanced Web APIs
<http://www.w3.org/2010/api-privacy-ws/>, where I argued that better APIs
allow more fine-grained information retrieval by specifying response groups
<http://www.w3.org/2010/api-privacy-ws/papers/privacy-ws-1.pdf>.

Hey Robin,

Good start!  You might also consider some of the thoughts on allowing users
to express privacy preferences discussed in RFC 6280:
<http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6280#section-1.3>

Note also that the W3C Geolocation group decided not to design this type of
privacy...
