Note feedback from TAG, notably on the Private Browsing Mode, in:

To my knowledge we don't have a concrete plan for the Private Mode 
Browsing release. In general a "private mode" would seek to limit the 
amount of fingerprinting and or state that is maintained between and 
during navigations. Several aspects of the Presentation API require 
presentation session objects to be consistent on return from a 
navigation, and a private browsing mode might of necessity destroy the
 consistency between these sessions for privacy reasons. It might also
 chose to limit the ability to launch new browsing sessions. In 
general, we cannot clearly define what the private browsing mode will 
do at this time, but requiring it as a prerequisit or dependency to 
the availablility of the presentation API seems to be a non-starter.
