In fact I do not think we can. For a simple reason, W3C produces 
documents which can be used for enabling mechanism, protocols, 
etc. Web accessibility documents are a good example. They explain 
how the technology can be used to create accessible documents (i.e. 
documents used by people with disabilities).

We can in that group provide documents explaining how to develop 
Web sites, clients which will give choices to users to browse with 
more opacity (or masked if you wish). We can't create document that 
mandate legal implications. Users organizations, privacy advocates, 
etc might use our documents to push the legal issues in their 
countries demonstrating how it is possible to do it.
