Re: June Draft Proposal: Transient Data

Hi Jonathan,

I've updated the de-identification page to include your proposal next to Lee's and the editors' draft text: 
http://www.w3.org/wiki/Privacy/TPWG/Change_Proposal_Short_Term

If it's possible to consolidate your text with Lee's proposal (which includes the text you presented last year in Seattle, I believe), let us know. 

Also, to repeat the question I posed to Lee on the same section, the editors' draft notes that contextual customization (showing an ad based on the contents of the current network interaction) would be out of scope (and therefore not prohibited) -- would you see that as compatible with your proposal? That is, do you propose to also delete the example sentence following the sentence you suggest we remove?

Thanks,
Nick
