Hi Lee,

I've updated this wiki page to include your proposal next to David's and the editors' draft text: 
http://www.w3.org/wiki/Privacy/TPWG/Change_Proposal_Transience_Collection

I've also moved ISSUE-16 to the Compliance June product, and renamed it to match the four key terms that the group seems to be using.

I believe your editorial comment on "data" rather than "data records" can just be taken up with the editors rather than addressed separately.

Thanks,
Nick
