Hi Aleecia,

For issue-97, and I apologize in advance if this is being dealt with
elsewhere, I thought we haven't yet come to consensus on whether a service
provider is a third party, the same party as the first party, or
referenced to as a service provider.

If its not resolved yet and if we take your proposal to adopt 3.5.2 Option
2 in which case a service provider is different than a third party, in
both those examples, I have problems calling the URL shortening services
third parties when they may actually be service providers.  I get the
intent of the author to want to call a URL shortening service a 3rd party
if they have their own use of the data.  But, in these non-normative
examples, it doesn't say that the shortening services have their own use.
