Thanks for the answer,
 > My intent on highlighting this piece of work is that there seems to
be an opportunity now to be more proactive and start to scope what a
"W3C Policy/Privacy" language/ruleset working group activity may look
like that can  address these and wider interests across W3C (eg the W3C
Social Web policy framework [1]). 
[JPLR] As a potential "customer" for this privacy ruleset I would be
happy if there was some Use Case with sequence diagrams somewhere,
because I don't feel at ease currently with the way it is expressed in
this link: http://dev.w3.org/2009/dap/privacy-rulesets/

[JPLR] I am more comfortable with this text than the one in the previous
link because because here there is a "privacy policy provider". But I am
not comfortable with the following sentence: "This is a departure from
the current approach of attempting to provide policy enforcement. Most
attempts to provide enforcement on the web (for example, traditional
digital rights management for multimedia content) have ended in failure,
and are not well accepted by the Web community."
I would say P3P belongs to the same family as "privacy rulesets", in
fact it's quite close in its goals and mecanisms. We can see how P3P was
adopted since ~10 years: 
* Mostly by Microsoft web sites and nearly nobody else. For example
www.eff.org which is quite aware of privacy problems and works a lot to
solve them doesn't implement P3P.
* Even W3C mostly doesn't implement it nowadays. For example there is no
P3P policy for the link on "privacy rulesets" which is amusing in a way.
* Firefox doesn't implement P3P. Do you expect them to implement
"Privacy rulesets"?
