Permissions and User Consent workshop

There are various activities at W3C underway or emerging that seem
highly relevant to permissions and capturing consent.

There is a W3C workshop in September on capturing consent. It may keep
its focus to the UX/UI of conveying clearly and concisely what the user
is giving permission for and not so much on the mechanics nor policy
language aspects. We are interested in the UX work too.

Also there is a Community Group (similar to Business Group), W3C Data
Privacy Vocabularies and Controls CG, we might want to follow if not
coordinate with. They too are taking a look at ODRL and policy
language. They are starting with smartphone, financial services and use
cases other than auto.

I have been talking to my colleagues involved in these two initiatives,
relaying automotive interests and will be following up more with them.
