Hi Mike,

Thank you for your comments (last June) on the TPE Last Call Working Draft. The Tracking Protection Working Group has discussed each of the issues and proposed resolutions.

Editor Roy Fielding has provided summaries of the responses in each of the tracker issues for the Last Call product; I have provided links below. I would briefly summarize the resolutions as:
* not changing term because discussed prior to Last Call and existing implementations

https://www.w3.org/2011/tracking-protection/track/issues/246

Please let us know if these changes or explanations resolve your concerns.

Thanks,
Nick Doty, W3C (for the Tracking Protection Working Group)

The term “exception” is currently in widespread use in computer programming especially in Java, C/C++/C# and JavaScript as a term for a type of control structure for program flow. This term will cause confusion amongst implementers who will probably defer to the less confusing but ugly UGE epithet.
