I do not know whether the Web Payments WG saw that document already but, 
when we looked into "Private Browsing mode" for the Presentation API in 
the Second Screen WG, Travis pointed us to Mark Nottingham's "User data 
Controls in Web Browsers" proto-spec:

This document provides guidance on how to reason about and specify 
interactions with User Data Controls. I think it is well worth a read 
when one needs to assess potential privacy issues.

The privacy and security questionnaire could perhaps reference that 
document, or include it, to clarify what the notion of private browsing 
mode typically conveys ("primarily a local data control", often a "site 
data control" as well).
