This was the basic idea behind P3P. But the browsers favored cookie-
blocking tools. DNT can't do the trick. The UI issue is really 
tricky. In the Primelife project we found out that a button that 
goes to a privacy dashboard was well received (we had usability 
studies on that by CURE)

So it may be that we have to touch on the basic idea again and adapt 
it to the landscape of today. There is a gazillion ways of 
expressing a state on the Web today. It is not only about 
fingerprinting, but also about the whole range of means for client 
side storage. 

Best,
