Let's try to sort this out and move ahead:

* It's now been clarified that Ashok was referencing
http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-iab-privacy-considerations-02 in the
context of Robin's work on Privacy by Design in APIs [1], and I think we've 
all agreed that the next time we should discuss that is when Robin has a 
new draft, or requests a session.

I'm certainly glad to give this agenda time either way, but I'm curious as 
to whether you see the above as being within the scope of [1], and if not, 
what you know about how you'd like to organize TAG work on privacy beyond 
what's called for in [1].

In any case, I will at least tentatively plan to put a telcon session on 
privacy and, if appropriate [2] in particular, on our telcon agenda for 24 
May. If there are proposals for privacy work beyond APIs, that's fine too, 
but I would like to take a look at why our other recent work on privacy had 
to be abandoned after significant effort, and why things are likely to go 
better if we re-engage.

Thank you.
