Yes, I agree.

Let me reiterate that this is just a terms of reference,
not a policy. 

The issue of what constitutes acceptable levels
of contactibility is to be determined by the Task Force. I 
don't see how that determination is prejudiced by words
asking what data elements are absolutely required
for contactibility. I do believe that it is prejudiced by shifting
the standard to "optimizing contactibility." If we wanted to
optimize contactibility we needn't worry about privacy
at all.
