The W3 has scheduled a privacy Workshop 12-13 July in London and  
issued a call for participation

http://www.w3.org/2010/api-privacy-ws/

 From the call for participation:
[[

As the Web advances toward becoming an application development  
platform that addresses needs previously met by native applications,  
work proceeds on APIs to access information that was previously not  
available to Web developers. The broad availability of possibly  
sensitive data collected through location sensors and other facilities  
in a Web browser is just one example of the broad new privacy  
challenges that the Web faces today.

Security considerations and design choices for sensitive APIs were the  
topic of the December 2008 W3C Workshop on Security for Access to  
Device APIs for the Web (report). Following up to that workshop, the  
Device API and Policy Working Group was chartered.

Earlier approaches to address privacy issues for the Web, especially  
through policy languages, have not seen broad implementation in  
current-generation Web browsers.

This workshop serves to investigate strategies toward better privacy  
protection on the Web that are effective and lead to benefits in the  
near term.
