I'm supportive of the modular approach as a stop-gap.  Eventually, and
in accordance with the P3WG charter, there will exist a full Privacy
Assurance Framework similar to, but orthogonal/complimentary to, the
Identity Assurance Framework.  But for now we have an immediate market
requirement in the world of Identity Assurance to have some criteria
and process for assessing an Identity Provider's privacy practices, at
least in the limited context of the US Federal Government's
E-Authentication/Open Trust Frameworks program

BTW, I don't think the Assurance Review Board would implement this
module (and they have yet to evaluate it) if they thought it was only
useful to the US Federal Government, we do believe there is broader

So this becomes immediately useful in a meaningful context, if
limited, yet motivates/ignites the more important work of the Privacy
Assurance Framework (I hope).

Robin, Trent, Iain, etc... If I'm off-base, please correct this
description of context and expectation.
