Thanks, Kepeng!  Feel free to add this to the wiki... greg/me/CDT
don't want it to feel like we "own" that, and others should feel free
to change it (as long as you have a w3c login).

I do think "classification" is a bit general... there are other parts
of the questionnaire that talk about "handling personal data" (my
words). So is this question specifically about creating data that
might be personal? For example for WebRTC, it generates a bunch of
audio/video data, and depending on what the camera is pointed at, some
of that could be quite personal.

best, Joe
