it may be that the regime under which the operation is completed will 
influence the ad - auction. So I assume that in the future, the ad auction 
will take the DNT header into account and will have an effect in this perfect 

And I assume that the highest price will be paid for ads in requests under 
DNT=0. IMHO the biggest problem Shane and you have to solve is NOT how to deal 
with massive DNT=1 occurrence, but how to get people from DNT=unset to DNT=0.

The feedback system Shane is talking about is giving you potential options for 
the next years to come. And your "opt-back-in" system can be a lot more 
sophisticated if you have already more information about the entire 
interaction. They system allows you to react instead of remaining blind. I'm 
with Shane here.
