Apologies, we had some issues with the formatting of that when it was converted to PDF. I am the author. See a more complete, easier to read, HTML version of "Fingerprinting Guidance for Web Specification Authors" at:
	http://w3c.github.io/fingerprinting-guidance/

> Abstract: Exposure of settings and characteristics of browsers can impact user privacy by allowing for browser fingerprinting. This document defines different types of fingerprinting, considers distinct levels of mitigation for the related privacy risks and provides guidance for Web specification authors on how to balance these concerns when designing new Web features.

Thanks,
Nick

P.S. I am not Satoshi.
