[NA-Discuss] Concerning a TLD-wide Privacy Policy

I was thinking about the prospect of a TLD-wide privacy policy. This 
would involve requiring name purchasers to indicate via a check box that 
"I agree to abide by the privacy protection policies set by the XYZ TLD. 
See details here."

My thinking is that there might be some advantage to requiring some 
transparency in privacy policy. Not necessarily requiring any particular 
level of transparency, but merely making the type of privacy (if any) 
obvious to the user.

Is this done anywhere now? Is it practicable for a city-TLD such as .nyc?

Your thoughts appreciated.
