>From my perspective, the current mechanisms of DNT (exceptions and DNT;0) only exempt a site from the constraints defined in the compliance spec.

I.e., once a user has granted an exception, all things are back to 'normal'  and the usual legal constraints apply. As a consequence, after having obtained an exception, enterprises are back to the situation without DNT.

I'd like to trigger the discussion to what extend we want to and can piggyback consent on top of the DNT exception and DNT;0 mechanisms. The question are as follows:
 1. "A user has granted an exception to a site, for what purposes can the data now be used by whom?"
 2. How can we shape the permitted purposes/parties to fit normal user expectations?
