@mfoltzgoogle and myself discussed privacy implications of the 
Presentation API with PING last week. Christine will send out an email
 summary. Draft minutes are available at:
http://www.w3.org/2015/12/03-privacy-minutes.html#item02

The gist of the feedback is that the Second Screen WG is doing well 
with regards to privacy, having already considered the main privacy 
issues that the specification raises. The privacy evaluation in itself
 does not reveal new major issues, although we may of course want to 
consider a couple of notes in the spec to raise awareness on some of 
the points. The focus on audio/video streaming was intended: streaming
 audio/video to a remote device is privacy-sensitive, the user needs 
to be in control (she is in control with the Presentation API through 
the selection of the second screen and the fact that the user is asked
 for each new request).

That said, Nick raised a couple of new comments during the discussion 
that I do not remember having been addressed:

1. the need to ensure users can always tell which origin is being 
presented (now tracked in issue #223)
2. possible privacy-related implications of multi-user scenarios (now 
tracked in issue #224)

See specific issue for details and discussions.
