Thanks Laura, 

I think we  (Open Notice) are going to put forward a submission.  Something along the lines of Open Notice to Open Digital Freedoms. 

As well, if anyone is interested (especially those interested in the freedom, data control or privacy) here is the recently accepted Open Notice position paper being presented at the W3C - DNT & Beyond conference at the end of the month. 

Best Regards,
