Very good, Agustin. This shows everyone a  wider picture.

I think it's important to name things in a way that feels like a
positive thing or at most neutral. So 'user feedback' not 'tracking',
etc. And I would disagree with accusations by those that use
'tracking' terms.

In this context if the vision says:
"A world in which everyone has control over their digital life and
enjoys freedom and privacy."

The 'electronic' user feedback is exactly the important means that
give users this very control.
And they do not trade the freedom or privacy for that control, not
more than in a case when I state that it can feel offensive when
anonymous users communicate with a project when we, project members,
are not hiding behind nicknames.

Conversely, people are free to trade the values: trade the control for
privacy and freedom. We can only hope these would be rare cases in the
general user's population. Our defaults regarding the 'user feedback'
policies could address that.
