I just saw the submission of draft-zhang-hip-privacy-protection-03.txt flying by and two questions came to my mind:

1) Did you think about using some of the privacy related terms from

This document tries to provide you guidance with regard to writing privacy considerations text for IETF documents and we would appreciate feedback on how useful the currently provided guidance is.
