Hi!

thanks to you for the proposed text and discussion.

I agree with the principles put forward by Jeff that sites that want
to obtain an exemption should explain 'for what', 'why', ...

I believe that we should not define a specific implementation (main
page, interstitial, SMS, ...) but instead focus on the objectives the
notification should achieve (clearly communicates; explains, links to
more information, ...)

Matthias
