tidoust has just created a new issue for 
https://github.com/w3c/presentation-api:

== Think more about privacy implications in multi-user scenarios ==
The issue was raised during last Privacy INterest Group (PING) call, 
that @mfoltzgoogle and myself attended on behalf of the Second Screen 
WG.

The group should review multi-user scenarios as there may be privacy 
implications that could warrant adding implementation guidelines to 
the spec. In particular, through the Presentation API, a given user 
may switch from a mode where she is the only person in control of a 
device to a mode where she has to share the control with others:

* The receiver device may be a "shared" device that accepts user 
inputs. The user of that shared device should know when someone else 
takes control of the device, or is under the control of another 
device.
* Similarly, when a second controller joins a presentation session, 
the first controller loses its exclusive relationship with the second 
screen and should probably be alerted.

There may be other aspects to review.
