All,

You are digging a very deep hole here. (Read Roy's email and mine on
expectation setting).

Currently this is no agreed upon definition of tracking and there is NO
requirement to honor the DNT header. So right there you have the bombs
waiting to explode as Joe Public turns on DNT in his browser privacy
settings and then finds out it means nothing.

The expectation of the WhiteHouse and the EU is that it does MEAN something.
And that means that content providers AND browser OEM's had better start
complying or there will be regulatory consequences. They have warned
everybody. DNT=1 is going to stand for something.

You cannot have it both ways. Privacy is one of those nuclear accidents
waiting to happen. If you recommend a spec that says by enabling this
setting "Tell Web Sites Not To Track Me", then by gum it better do it – and
IF a content provider chooses to acknowledge that header then in turn they
better really NOT track you.

Anything less than that and this spec will fail immediately. And the press
will be the least of anyones concerns. The calls will be coming from the
regulators and they'll be accompanied by fines. Nobody wants that – better
to get it right now than fail later.



Peter
