Jonathan, 

for EU consent purposes we need a more detailed list of allowances 
(aka "at least") I took an action with Shane, but this is overdue. 
So this is just a heads up that I believe we need not only to 
release the restrictions from the compliance spec, but also a set of 
positive permissions for the ad chains to work in the EU context. 
Because otherwise, DNT:0 will not give permissions in regulated 
environments (also think about Australia & Japan)

I presented yesterday at the IAB Europe and there was some interest 
in providing further input, hopefully.
