Propose specific text for ISSUE-35, ISSUE-52, ISSUE-53, ISSUE-57, ISSUE-58

<extracted from Yahoo's "W3C Proposal - DAA DNT Hybrid" document presented at Princeton>

Honoring User Preferences
As multiple systems may be setting, sending, and receiving DNT and/or Opt-Out signals at the same time, it'll be important to ensure industry and web browser vendors are on the same page with respect to honoring user choices in circumstances where "mixed signals" may be received.

o   No DNT Signal / No Opt-Out:  Browser / device is not opted-out

o   DNT Signal / No Opt-Out:  Browser/device is opted-out

o   Opt-Out / No DNT Signal:  Browser/device is opted-out

o   Opt-Out / DNT Exception:  Exception is honored (browser/device is not opted-out)


NOTE:  The above text will need to be modified to include the appropriate terminology as this is decided upon by the working group.  For example, DNT Exception would need to be replaced with "Site-Specific Exception/Exemption" depending on the outcome of that discussion.
