My main privacy concern with the API as it is currently defined, is 
that it enables probing which DIAL applications the user has installed
 on their TV. Especially the fact that this can be done without user 
interaction is concerning.

My main concern here isn't the fingerprinting issue, but rather that 
this might leak personal information about the user.
