Interesting visualization, thanks.

One thing of note is that domains/sites such as Omniture's tracking domain 2o7.net show up as confirmed trackers, though practically the data they collect is for the "first-party domain" only.  

Depends on whether you want to make a distinction between data that single "entity" possesses, and how they can/do use it.
