Ok, we have 2 options, but how do you tell to which of the 55000 URIs the 
tracking status applies to? How do you deal with dynamic content? Don't tell 
me that you just declare: ACL is this and non ACL is that and let the user 
in the dark on what state he is "currently" in? (This site is a mine field, 
there are places where you are secure and others where you aren't. But we 
won't tell you which is which) In this case, we just need a simple 
declaration for the entire web: Either you are tracked our you aren't. Done. 
For the entire web. Nice! Could be hardwired in the browser. No need for a 
well-known location anymore because you could always know in advance that 
you're either tracked; or not. What does that buy us compared to the status 
quo?
