Thanks for the feedback!

> It does not mention permissions exposed to the Permissions API in 
parts of the Web platform affected by Site Data Controls, which could 
persist from one browsing session to another. If it's on purpose, I 
don't understand why.

It's not meant to be a complete listing, but that's a good point; 

> I failed to understand why AppCaches were listed in Site Data 
Controls and not in Local Data Controls together with HTTP caches 
initially, until I remembered that AppCache also comes with an 
Application cache API that exposes the cache status to the app. It 
might be worth clarifying that in the document. And if there's another
 reason, I missed it...

"Privacy Mode", e.g. to say "Create a new top-level browsing context C
 set to display content on D in privacy mode" in an algorithm.

It isn't the intent of this spec to define privacy mode for that
