Agreed, strongly.  I think the way forward (or perhaps, better,
*a* way forward) is to form an EG or a RG and try to create
a survey of the privacy issues -- including the tradeoffs.
I think that there are far more serious issues in play and that it would
be a useful exercise to try to enumerate all of them in one place --
well before we think about deciding *which* to address and *how* to
address them.
