That should probably be resolved before we start integrating other specs 
with the API, since without a solid privacy story, the API might change 
radically.

In fact, looking at the spec again today, I can't find anything about 
enumerating anything. (Indeed, the word "enumerating" doesn't appear in 
that spec.) Am I missing something? There doesn't seem to be a table of 
contents either... Anyone know the status of that spec?
