             It might be useful, and 'complete the model', if we had a JS API that told a host what its current exception status is in a given context. See proposal here.<br />
-            <b>Proposal</b>: Specifically, an API QueryExceptionStatus() which examines the <b>document origin</b> of the script, the current <b>top-level origin</b> and returns an empty string if no DNT header would be sent to that document origin, or the exact DNT header (DNT:1 or DNT:0) that would be sent otherwise.
+            <b>Proposal</b>: Specifically, a doNotTrack property which examines the <b>document origin</b> of the window, the current <b>top-level origin</b> and returns null if no DNT header would be sent to that document origin, or the exact DNT header (DNT:1 or DNT:0) that would be sent otherwise.
           </p>
-          <p>This call enables a site to determine what DNT header would be sent to it
-          in the current context, taking into account the user's general preference 
-          (if any) and any exceptions.</p>

-            <dt>DOMString requestDNTStatus( )</dt>
+          <p>
+              This property enables a site executing code in its own origin
+              to determine what DNT header would be sent to it in the current
+              context, taking into account the user's general preference (if
+              any) and any user-granted exceptions.</p>
+          <dl class="idl" title='[NoInterfaceObject] interface WindowDoNotTrack'>
+            <dt>attribute DOMString doNotTrack</dt>
             <dd>
               Returns the same string value that would be sent in a
             <a>DNT-field-value</a> (<a href="#dnt-header-field"
             class="sectionRef"></a>) to a <strong>target</strong> that is the
-              document-origin of the request, in the
+              document-origin of the <code>window</code>, in the
               context of the current <strong>top-level origin</strong>. If no DNT
               header would be sent (e.g. because a tracking preference is 
-              <a>not enabled</a>) the return value is <code>null</code>.
+              <a>not enabled</a>) the value is <code>null</code>.
