identification and authentication is far from our starting point, 
however an interesting use case.
If identity providers are in the business of using the knowledge for 
different purposes then what the user intended (ie logging into a 
service), then for those extra things, the identity providers should be 
submitted to the DNT preference signal. Would that help?

The entire concept of a federated identity system, for example, is to segregate the identity provider from any processing tasks beyond identity authentication. I would not expect an OpenID identity provider, for example, to suddenly become a 1st party simply because I used it to sign in). The role of that provider should be completed once my identity has been authenticated.
