After posting on the principles in some mailing lists, I got replies
from the social sciences/ humanities/ medical corner in which concerns
were raised about the lack of definition of "data" in the principles,
and about a possible lack of applicability to their fields,
essentially because of privacy concerns for subjects/ patients.
Perhaps you can address these points when you talk about the subject?
