 In Tor Browser, we have a "Security" Slider and various "Privacy"
 features. But these words are not so easily distinguished. Maybe we could
 think of a better words?

 In any case, we should defined the two concepts very clearly in the Design
 document, and we should make sure we don't mix them up. For example,
 section 2.1 is entitled "Security Requirements" but goes on to list what I
 would consider privacy properties and does not include the sort of
 security intended to be provided by the Slider.
