Hi Chris,

Thank you for your comments (last June) on the TPE Last Call Working Draft.

(1)  The requirements on when user agents may send DNT:1 signals on behalf of a user as detailed in Section 4 of the TPE. The group previously rejected providing more detailed requirements; you do not provide new information or a proposal to cause us to reopen this issue. We revisited this issue during the Last Call process in considering a proposal to require information about the DNT setting party within the DNT field, but that proposal was rejected by the group.

See also: TPE Last Call comments, re: validation of user signals (issue-260)

(2) The decision to define tracking and context in the TPE was previously resolved by the group; you do not provide new information to justify reopening this long-discussed issue.

(3)  The working group previously resolved to include support for the exception mechanism as a mandatory element of the TPE.

Please let us know whether these explanations resolve your concerns.

Nick Doty, W3C
(for Tracking Protection Working Group Co-Chairs: Carl, Justin and Matthias)
