I don't think you need to move anything, but perhaps something like the following could serve as an new section for the FPWD (so the topic is mentioned and basic principles noted):

6. Privacy Considerations

The user needs to have confidence that the Service will user the data associated with the action for the purpose intended and not share or retain the data inappropriately.  For this reason it is important that the user have control over Intents, in particular the selection mechanism which determines which Service will handle a particular Intent.  This offers the possibility of user decision and control related to the choice of service, allowing them to take into account expectations regarding the Service, including Service policies related to retention and secondary use. This relates to the privacy principles of control and consent [DAP-PRIVACY-REQS].   For this reason a user should be made aware of explicit intents and be able to view and change them ; implementations should be encouraged to offer this functionality.

Minimum data necessary for a Service should be included as Intent parameters,  corresponding to the privacy principle of minimization  [DAP-PRIVACY-REQS].

This would also bring in the DAP Privacy Requirements as an informative reference (ReSpec [[DAP-PRIVACY-REQS]] )

I also noticed a draft typo in section 3.5.1 - unregistering: change "ame-origin" to "same-origin".

I hope this quick drafting of text helps.
