See mailing list discussions, including from Rigo on 25 May 2012:

"P.S. we need to determine in Seattle what permissions we need for DNT;0 and 
where to note them down, which goes to the core of the EU system issue Roy 
is coming back to. We need a positive definition of tracking. What does it 
require at least. (in the US, receiving DNT;0 you may go beyond) I think 
that the minimum permissions needed should not contain open ends."

Presumably DNT:0 means something along the lines of "yes, you may track me," but we come back to what exactly that entails. If we say "you may collect any data and use it for any purpose" this will not count as consent in the EU since there is not an associated context. Can we craft something that will work for everyone?
