tracking-ISSUE-152: User Agent Compliance: feedback for out-of-bound consent [Tracking Definitions and Compliance]

During the discussion on consent we considered:

Out-of-band consent will be further reinforced in user interactions through either the Header Response or Well-Known URI approaches to replying to user Tracking Preferences. This will provide a constant reminder of prior consent on each interaction and provide a resource (link) to allow the user to understand how this consent was achieved and ideally present options to alter that consent if the user chooses to do so.

Yet we have no requirements on a user agent to present that information to the end user. Do we wish to?  As SHOULD or MUST? What can we say without crossing the line into UI?
