Unfortunately, I think the properties listed (Transducer Serial Number, 
Preferred Color,  Preferred Line Width, Preferred Line Style) may fall 
foul of this (particularly the TSN, the others could be used to at least 
infer/narrow down users). I think one thing that *would* be nice would 
be to ensure that the same transducer always gets the same pointerId 
across interactions (not the same as the TSN, but unique for the 
duration of the browser/tab session)
