I remain concerned that the current text doesn't make it easy to determine "does this server think it is allowed to track me, i.e. might it be tracking me if it wishes?"

It currently allows me to determine "is this a 1st party?" which is only one of four cases:
* 1st party
* 3rd party that didn't see a DNT request (maybe it got deleted in transit)
* 3rd party that thinks it saw DNT:0
* 3rd party that thinks it has an out-of-band exception
