Yes, I see the limits of the term principle..

Personally, I like Master Controller, but it suffers from the same  
sort of limitations.   I think in a privacy perspective Master  
Controller may be incredibly useful as a technical term but that is  
just my opinion.

In reality even data subject has semantical issues as a term and maybe  
even a blurring of terminological meaning  at an attribute level.   
The  significant difference is that Data Subject, Data Controller, and  
Data Processor are entrenched legally and therefore have some  
recognised authority.

Either way, it seems, terms need to find a way to be mapped by  
something like an agreed standard.
