I'm not clear on what this is describing:

* /A third-party could provide transparency about their own data 
practices in order to persuade users to pre-emptively provide 
user-granted exceptions. A third-party tracker might use a 
machine-readable policy (for example, P3P) or some indication of 
compliance with a self-regulatory program or auditing practice . Users 
that care to might configure their user agents to grant exceptions (and 
thus send DNT:0 signals) to trackers with such practices./

Is this a suggested implementation for UA's to grant exceptions based on 
p3p or on participation in self-reg programs?
