It seems that the IAB Europe has no idea how to solve the cookie issues in 
Europe. But the Directive was decided in 2009 and the Commission won't open it 
again in 2011.

I am personally of the opinion that with a little eagerness for compromise we 
can solve some of the issues with the tracking-protection currently under way. 
DNT could even address some of the user interface challenges that are raised 
by Article 5.3 of the ePrivacy Directive (2002/58/EC). And if DNT is well 
defined, the overreaction of the regulator goes away and we have real choice. 
David Singer said it and Jules Polonetsky said it: Either the technology 
people are in the driver seat or the politicians will do something that the 
technology people will not necessarily like.
