[ppml] Policy Proposal 2006-1: Residential Customer Privacy

Hi Sam,
If you concur completely, why was this change, that was suggested at
the meeting in Montreal, not incorporated into the policy for this
policy cycle?  The community is at risk of running further cycles on
this policy than necessary.

Would you be amenable to change policy proposal 2006-1 to incorporate
"at the least, city, state, and non-specific postal code should be
preserved (5- digit ZIP (US), first 3 characters [I assume a reference
to Canada would be here]"

Or do I misunderstand with what you are concurring?
Stacy
