Mark is talking about the document 
    Tracking Preference Expression (DNT)
    W3C Working Draft 14 November 2011
    http://www.w3.org/TR/2011/WD-tracking-dnt-20111114/

This document is aimed primarily at the implementers audience 
(not policy makers). People who will deal with the HTTP layer 
of the client and the server. The specification has to be 
unambiguous for this audience. At the HTTP layer, There is no 
such things as a business entity.

There are hosts, domain names, data, etc. We have to clearly 
keep that in mind when we are defining the technology.
