Roy, they could send a no-ACK feedback (header) back and be still 
compliant to DNT as this would be a legitimate response in the DNT 
spec. Personally, I think this would be the better solution. This 
would fit the legal dependencies and would work in all use cases, 
even in those raised by Tamir. There are other opinions though that 
would only see a compliance if DNT;1 is respected and solve the case 
in question by saying that this is legitimate but non-compliant 
behavior.
