It's not a global threat.  However, it *is* a *specific* threat to some people.

We support the ability of students to restrict "directory information" to
various levels, from "don't list home address" to  "we won't admit they are a
student without a court order or other authorization". I happen to know that
299 students (out of roughly 7,000) in our graduating class currently have
their privacy set high enough to exclude them from being listed in the program
for the 2011 graduation ceremony.  Sure would be a shame if the network itself
insisted on making them trackable...

(Some of these students are just privacy minded, but we have a fair number that
are children of diplomats/etc, or are literally in hiding from ex'es or
non-custodial parents and have restraining orders out - these people *really*
don't want to be tracked/found...)
